No worries, Ill have a look and see what parts I can contribute too.

Greetings!  And thanks for your interest in GCL!

2.7 is the master branch in git.

Unfortunately, I've put too many experimental ideas in 2.7 for
production use at the moment.  The compiler output is far superior, as
is the compliance, but the compiler is too slow, and needs a cache to
avoid recompiling the same lisp primitives (automatically inlined)

So for now I take ideas from master and graft onto the 2.6 series to
produce incremental releases.  Hopefully the gap will be narrowed soon
and we can restore master to its proper role.

Take care,
