Apologies to those of you who have seen this message already.
I have nothing to do with this newsletter; I'm just forwarding this
message because I thought people on the scheme list might be interested.

Re: Looking for Lisps...
As part of a feature of the LISP POINTERS newsletter, we'd like to collect
descriptions of all currently available Lisp implementations.
Any kind of Lisp is acceptable; it doesn't have to be Common Lisp or Scheme or
Interlisp or MacLisp. It doesn't have to be a commercially supported product
either; it can be free with no warranties whatsoever.
If you're working on an implementation, and you're willing to describe it
for everyone's benefit, send us at least the following information:
Implemented to which standard (if any)
Features (if no standard; see the suggested list of issues below)
Additional Features (if implemented according to a standard)
Missing Features (if implemented according to a standard)
Support (if supported, by whom; sources available?)
Source or Contact
Any other comments
Submitter's name, address, and net-address
Some features you might want to comment on include:
Predefined data types
Name spaces and scopes and extents
Control structures (e.g., special forms, non-local goto's, multiple
values, multiple stacks, tasking, multi-processor support)
Typing and declarations
Graphics and windowing support
Programming tools (e.g., graphics packages, editor interaction,
Interaction with other languages
AI-oriented tools (e.g., pattern matching, rules, database support,
natural language interface)
Any other interesting features
