Subject Re: New project website

Amazing work!
The new site looks really good.
I like white websites more, they are easier to read.
Also, its great that you're putting the community on the front page. I hear
quite often that users like the good support they are getting from the
mailing lists. I personally experienced other open source communities which
didn't answer my questions on their list. I think that's not happening in
our community!
The blog posts with their dates on the front page show that the project is
very active.

Some detailed comments:
- The front page doesn't contain the word "batch" at all. People might be
confused
- why is the "Table API" so prominent on the front page? Other staging
projects like python or the hadoop compat don't get a mention at all.
- Do you think adding a very little "Beta" badge on the system stack at the
front page to the beta components would be a good idea? I think we should
manage the expectations there. ML, gelly and the table API are all not part
of any official stable release.
- The disqus comments are missing in the blog
- The frontpage link to the setup is broken:
http://ci.apache.org/projects/flink/flink-docs-master/setup/
- The codetabs.js file contains (and actually logs) "HERE" to the
javascript console of my browser. Looks like some leftover debugging code.
- codetabs.js also gets a "Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined" on
the downloads page.
- I don't want to put the burden of fixing this onto alone (= I can help
you), but basically all links to the documentation in the blog are broken.
For example for the 0.9.0-m1 annoucements, the links to gelly and the table
api are broken. This issue is independent of this change, but still
annoying.
- The link to our twitter account could be more prominent. Maybe on the
front page?

.. I'll give feedback to the Feature page, once its done ;)
