+## What is it?
+This is Emacs' master branch, with Common Lisp packages added (and
+some stuff removed, which I was too lazy to support).
+I am using this on a daily basis on MacOS with an init file that I can
+also use with an unchanged master. I make no efforts to find or fix
+bugs in stuff that I don't use personally.
+My init file uses `use-package` and `straight`, and I am using
+packages like `vertico`, `consult`, `corfu`, `magit`, `org`, so I'd
+say it's quite backwards compatible.
+## Who's that?
+`C-h i d m emacs RET s gerd RET`
+## What's not there/not supported
+* Documentation
+* Tests
+* Support for pure space
+* Support for symbol shortcuts
+## What's there
+You can use packages much like in Common Lisp. For details, read
+`lisp/emacs-lisp/pkg.el` and `src/pkg.c`, and maybe
+`admin/cl-packages.org`, although I haven't kept that up-to-date for
+some time, I guess.
+## What's the plan?
+None. I don't think CL packages will land in Emacs in my lifetime.
+I'd say the resistance against anything CL is simply too high among
+current Emacs maintainers, especially rms.
+So, why do this?  Because I can. Some people like to tinker with their
+init files, others go a step further...
