Maybe Yves needs a fancy domain to motivate himself? Maybe he knows how
to do it all when he can use he's own server but isn't sure how to
freely design a web site under the debian domain. I would suggest him to
start with a plain IP address somewhere so it becomes clearer what he
has in mind.
But my actual point was that to some, posting a proposal to a public
list can feel like entering someone elses house. You may have noticed
that Yves did not respond yet.
