I was asked to ping ya'all about this before proceeding.
I'm one of the maintainers of Snowy, the AGPL Django web application
that lets users synchronize their notes to a central server, view
(and, eventually, edit) them online, and share them with friends.
The GNOME sysadmin team is starting a project to deploy Snowy on GNOME
infrastructure. The goal is for this to be the de facto web service
for users who wish to synchronize their Tomboy notes.
For a long time, I've been referring to this hypothetical service as
"Tomboy Online". I have registered the domains tomboy-online.com and
tomboy-online.org in anticipation of this deployment.
Before we go ahead with using that domain name and branding, I'd like
to make sure there is no objection from folks on this list.
Here's what I wrote in my mail to gnome-infrastructure-list:

With the understanding that we could always rebrand before this
deployment is open to the public, does anyone take issue with using
the "Tomboy Online" brand as we begin alpha testing?
Thanks for your time,
