SYS:SITE; A novice adminstrator's question

    Is that correct? Is that what one really wants? I can conceive of cases
    where I want a different .SYSTEM file for different Genera releases. 

I'm not sure if this is what you're struggling with, but you can
conditionalize translations (or anything) with (si:get-release-version).
Hence for instance

(select (si:get-release-version)
  (7 (set-logical-pathname-host "sys" :translations
				'(("sys:**;*.*.*" "NRL-SPACE75:>REL-7-2>**>*.*.*"))))
  (8 (set-logical-pathname-host "sys" :translations
				'(("sys:**;*.*.*" "space50:>rel-8-0>**>*.*.*")))))

Hope this helps.
