Bug#591054: cl-asdf: circular dependency with common-lisp-controller

I tried to upload a cl-asdf that removes the dependency, but failed.

1- with the new ASDF2, do we really need to register source anymore, anyway?
 It should already be registered, being in the correct location that's
registered by default.

2- should c-l-c depend on ASDF if ASDF depends on c-l-c? How do the
 script currently resolve the dependency issue?

I believe that
a- c-l-c should be simplified with respect to the newest ASDF2, and
marked as depending on ASDF 2.004 or later.
b- dh_lisp should be simplified with respect to said new c-l-c
c- cl-asdf would then not depend on c-l-c anymore.

Who on the debian CL team is in charge of c-l-c? If no one, would
anyone upload my changes? How do I upload a -2 package on mentors with
it complaining that there is no orig tarball?
