Subject Fwd: Who is responsible for JDOCentral.com?
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2007 19:46:14 GMT
I've discussed this with Dirk, who is willing to redirect the  
jdocentral.com URL to an Apache JDO URL.

So, where do we want to redirect it?



The real question is whether we want to have a dedicated landing zone  
that we know is from people asking for jdocentral, or simply land on  
the main page. I haven't thought too much about this; suggestions
