I must admit to getting confused on the site as well.  Here are a
couple of things I was thinking about, prompted by Alex's comments:

1.  http://trac.clozure.com:
     (a)  Note that the ffigen project is generating an error today!
     (b)  Why does Clozure CL show up on this list twice?

2.  Could you put a download link on the
"http://www.clozure.com/clozurecl.html" page that points at the
current "valid" 1.3 image (perhaps by platform)?  This might make it
easier for people to find (the Trac page might be confusing for

3.  Could you create a mapping from "http://bugs.clozure.com" to the
Trac bug page?

I'll try to look at some of the examples over the weekend.  Maybe I'll
even manage to fix something :-)
