I like it. I do feel the Wikimedia foundation is diverging from it's previous role as custodian of Wikipedia, and becoming a international advocacy group. I feel this change is welcome and will help develop the Creative Commons mission beyond just Wikipedia and it's sister sites.
I take it the design of the site is CC-BY-SA-4.0, this is nice since it allows others to copy the design. Overall it's an improvement from the previous site.
