This is done, and might have introduced one small regression in
useful-clojure's unit tests. I'll take a look at that.

If we want to upload clj, we will have to do it and the new lein release
simultaneously, because we need a mutual data-xml bump, so I am going to
look into clj first. Chatting with Phil, the latest leiningen release
doesn't actually seem super compelling; most of the patch releases since
2.9.1 have introduced (and fixed) bugs in a sort of endless cycle :)

I am looking into this today. I'm going to run with uploading version
0.9.816 because we don't have a new enough maven version resolver for
the latest release. That one is only 4 months old so I'm hoping it's not
critical. Changelog[1] does not seem super critical since then (and I
can easily enough patch it to use the new default Clojure version of

I think we may also have a broken trapperkeeper-scheduler-clojure but
I'm not stressing about that one as the only thing that needs the lib is
puppet, which won't be making it into bullseye.
