Subject Re: Who Runs cordova.io?
Date Fri, 27 Mar 2015 23:18:19 GMT
Hi Dmitry,

I own and pay for the cordova.io domain. When it comes to domains, the
general rules within Apache are:

1. cordova.io URLs that point to official Apache resources (e.g.
cordova.apache.org) must redirect to the official URL and not mask it. This
ensures that the project is recognized as an official Apache project. We do
this for cordova.io, docs.cordova.io, and issues.cordova.io

2. Apache prefers to not have the word "apache" in the third-party domain
because ownership can be deceiving. cordova.io is okay. apachecordova.io is
misleading.

For those interested, I'll describe some of the history of cordova.io.
During the donation of PhoneGap to Apache, I registered the cordova.io
domain. In my naivety, I thought we could use it as the official Apache
Cordova domain (CNAME style like Github Page). However, after talking with
our Apache mentor, I learned what I stated above (redirect and make it
clear that the domain is not apache property). Regardless, I decided to
keep the domain around because it's shorter, verbally easier to spread by
word-of-mouth (e.g. docs.cordova.io), and cleaner for presentation slide
decks.

The entire Adobe team has access to the DNS management of the domain. If
anyone else on the Apache Cordova project would like to add a subdomain,
I'm all for it! Likewise, if you want a subdomain removed, let's talk about
i!

Cheers,
Michael
