As I understand the message above, this is taken for granted, i.e., the 
final domain name will be decided by this AOO community and (even if it 
is different from extensions.services.openoffice.org) the existing 
domain will also be redirected to it. There are no reasons for doing it 
differently, are there any?

Thanks! Advertised to the Italian users list too
http://s.apache.org/dkQ
but with the important difference that I explicitly stated that the 
aoo-extensions.sf.net URL is temporary. At least that was my understanding.

In other words: I expect that, if the new site is working, we decide to 
make it available as extensions.openoffice.org or 
extensions.services.openoffice.org and that, in any case, the old 
extensions.services.openoffice.org is fully redirected to the new 
website, for the obvious reasons stated above (updates, hardcoded links).

If this is the common understanding, the Bugzilla issue
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=118976
should be updated with this information.

And, regarding other comments in the forum thread above:
- A user stated that he can't login with his OOo username, but it worked 
for me and apparently for the other people who posted here.
- Hagar Delest changed existing links into aoo-extensions.sf.net but I'm 
not sure this is right: I think it is the same stuation we have for the 
forum, where we have a *.apache.org URL and user.services.openoffice.org 
but we (at least I do) use only the openoffice.org address commonly.

Regards,
   Andrea.
