At this point only preliminary feedback was requested, and I believe 
only Carl has the privileges to integrate feedback. I suppose once 
preliminary changes are completed he can share the source and make a 
more definitive consultation.

I am not sure what type of data or feedback we currently get about the KDE site...and how this is going to be easier/better for people. That helps with decision making a lot -- especially when there are disagreements with what to do or not to do.

For this KDE site it might not matter, but for applications it can be really important. For example if most people that are going to your site have a 1366 x 768 monitor, you better make sure your application works well at that screen size.
