Mmm, my offer cannot work "as is". foswiki.org is using Dreamhost as a
registrar, and there is no way (confirmed today by Dreamhost support) to
host blog.fowsiki.org on my dreamhost account, as foswiki.org is managed on
another dreamhost account. (it works when the registrar is not dreamhost).
The solutions I can see:
- Foswiki.org is moved to another registrar (which I recommend in
general: I advise to separate the registrar from the hosting companies, I
use personally gandi.net as its legal conditions are the most favorable
- The Foswiki Association buy some hosting plan (on DreamHost or
- Another foswikier can provide hosting (not on dreamhost)
- The blog could be hosted on the current foswiki server (I am not in
favor for it, traffic (crawlers) on wordpress could slow down foswiki,
which would be bad for the foswiki engine reputation)
- Foswiki.org domain is transfered to my dreamhost account (I am not in
favor for it. Domain name proprerty is in my opinion quite critical and
should be the property of the Association, in some formal way)
