CoMa - The Configuration Management tool

Note that CoMa is not maintained anymore.

Similar to autoconf, but without the auto part, CoMa provides a uniform configuration mechanism for items. Intended to be used in component based development (buzz, buzz) where different software pieces are used in the context of more than one application or version of the same application, it provides a way to configure items and query, validate their configuration.

A special kind of item called kit acts as the descriptor for a whole product: it can check out the needed items and configure them to work together. At present it works best with HO-CVS, but it can get on with pure CVS, albeit with some loss of convenience.

CoMa is written and customized in Common Lisp.
