I just had a chance to review your work: very good! “fresh", “modern", “crisp” are some adjectives which spring to mind. You made quite natural and intelligent choices for additional content, such as the Reddit feeds.
As such, I would certainly love for its use as the main source for common-lisp.net. The next meeting of the Common Lisp Foundation (the organization the runs common-lisp.net) should be June 6, where we can probably come to a decision, but overall, our first goal has been to move away from Ruby into CL-MUSTACHE which your version seems to do quite well.
There are some minor things that I would change, mainly about the visual space which the menu bar occupies. And the rest of the CLF board will undoubtedly have things they would want changed, so there will be a bit of back and forth, but thank you so much for the initiative.
I’ll try to get back to you in the next couple days about next intermediate steps. Please ping me next week if you haven’t heard from me.
