Was thinking of experimenting with ideas for gnome web infrastructure on my

Its due to be auctioned by this month. Long story short, I was
talking to someone from and they said that they have a history of
donating domains to angularjs and perl foundation ( and

He said he would be happy to donate to open source foundations if they want
it (in relation to the domain).

The contact from was Mike Carson. Don't want to paste his email on
a public mailing list but if any foundation members would like to follow up
on it I can send it privately.

If they're willing to donate the domain, rather than auctioning it off,
that would be quite helpful.  I don't think it'd be at all appropriate
for anyone *other* then the GNOME Foundation to hold such a domain.  The
GNOME Foundation could either make it a redirect or use it for other
purposes (such as the same purpose as or, namely a
home for developer subdomains for projects).

I think it'd be entirely appropriate for the GNOME Foundation to receive
this.  Someone from the Board (BCCed) would be the most appropriate
person to either broker that or designate someone to do so.
