Hi Tobias,

I am answering your both emails at once.

AFAIK, I do not know if an agreement has been formally defined.  The
story is: I wrote to Chris Webber to ask how they did for the
ActivityPub online conference and they redirected me toward Fosshost and
Thomas; more or less in the same time, Fosshost proposed hardware
donation.  Then I have just applied for support.  That’s all.

I can ask clarifications about the terms, if needed.

I agree.  The URL name had been discussed at the time with Ludo, Julien
and me.  Maybe over IRC or privately (too lazy to look for unnecessary
reference).  The decision was “minimal effort”. ;-) Well, let’s start
with the default and see how/where it goes.

Now, because people are asking more informal meetings to discuss
specific topics, or because hackathon are coming, etc.  it appears to me
the good thing to do is manage or whatever other name.

Nice!  Thank you.

Is the same problem with which appears here:


?  What is your suggestion to avoid the same problem?  Only pubish
guix-foo without the as it is done with info-guix here [1]?
