     I see file EXPORTS.ALL both on <LISP>LIBRARY> & <LISP>SOURCES>.'

In response to the message sent  13 Mar 84 10':03':32 PST (Tuesday) from  LispSupport'
A "current" copy of EXPORTS.ALL should live on <LispCore>Sources>, for'
the benefit of those who load ABC while editing system files.'
A "snapshot" copy of EXPORTS.ALL should be on <Lisp>Library> for the benefit'
of those customers/users to whom we''ve promised internal system records etc.'
It must be coordinated with the "release" sysout, and need not be "homed"'
on <Lisp>Library> -- just some place where that facilitates the coordination.'
I believe that the SYSEDIT lispusers package is on <Lisp>Library>, and this'
is the tool needed to make effective use of the "release" version of '
EXPORTS.ALL (it corrospends with <LispCore>Sources>ABC file).'

Subject': AR 35': fix MAKE-EXPORTS.ALL and ABC and SYSEDIT to make/load from <dir>LIBRARY> rather than <dir>SOURCES>.'
To':   LispSupport'
cc':   LispCore↑'
It would simplify the world a bit if the home for EXPORTS.ALL was uniformly on <LispCore>Library>, <LispNew>Library> and then <Lisp>Library>.'
I think it may only be necessary to move ABC and MAKE-EXPORTS.ALL to <LispCore>Library>.'
This is all part of the more general AR to automate and document the release process.'

Nothing changes if you just LOAD(ABC) or LOAD(MAKE-EXPORTS.ALL), but I thought I would send this note just to let you know what happened if you wondered.'
In response to AR#35 and the discussion therein, I moved the EXPORTS.ALL file to <LispCore>Library>. I left ABC and MAKE-EXPORTS.ALL on <LispCore>Sources> (since they are part of the "sources" of the system), but we release EXPORTS.ALL as part of the "library" even to folks who don''t want sources.'
I fixed ABC and MAKE-EXPORTS.ALL to load/make the file on >Library> of course.'
