Yes, I do realize that. That's why I bought domain in fact - to make one
URL pointing to all resources we have. Hosting isn't a big problem
either - I have my own server, and common-lisp.net hosting is kind
enough to lend us enough space.

Hmm, I think that a good starting point would be for time being
https://common-lisp.net/project/ecl, which has direct links to wikipedia
and issues page. That's why I did put this url in mentioned post.

Thank you for feedback, it really matters. I agree, that website with
news, sources and binary builds for base platforms would be a great
thing to have - it is in a backlog. If somebody steps up, and create and
maintain nice looking website, I'd be very happy (as I said, hosting
isn't a problem). Doing it on my spare time I have to make priorities -
what comes first, and what could wait, or if we could use a band-aid to
delay something in time.

Best regards,
