Yes, exactly. | I'll try to come up with an s-expression based format that will catch the minimum information and see where we can go from there. Thank you. | I will provide the example for SRFI-1 (as I've manually built that list myself), and also for R7RS (which although not an SRFI I think needs to be present in such an index, especially since many of the R7RS definitions are borrowed from various SRFI's, and many SRFI's re-export some R7RS definitions). That's an excellent point about R7RS-small. Perhaps we can have one ready for R7RS-large once it is announced. Since R7RS-large will be based on many SRFIs, efforts on those SRFIs will be doubly rewarded. | As a side-note, I am accustomed with Racket, and such I'll use that as the environment. Does anyone have any objections? Moreover the format I will propose will be as simple as possible so that one can use standard functions (basically `assoc` and firends) to handle it, and at the same time to be 1-to-1 convertible to JSON so that we can build HTML views over this data. It's fine with me, especially if you plan to share your code.
