I chided a few Lisp advocates in Why Lisp Still Hasn't Won, so let me now praise the greater number of Lisp advocates who are participating in the Lisp Gardeners project to improve Common Lisp for novices and experts alike. Things look very good so far -- it's very heartening to see a real community form to address a few technical issues (and in the process, solve a few more difficult social ones). Keep up the good work!
What would make you consider (or go back to) Common Lisp?
