Sure :).

I mentioned previously. Would it make sense to
join any such umbrella that could hold the domain name officially? Or is
that overkill really? (note that there exist many such umbrellas and I
don't favor a specific one). Alternatively, if people trust me, I can
just keep it and provide the domain name and/or webspace.

Well, I don't think, we will be needing terabytes of traffic. Especially
given that I expect the code to remain on github and the mailing list
archive to remain at alioth (or any other hoster), but this basic
infrastructure stuff is nothing that we should be doing ourselves.

What we *can* do, is provide a central "entry door" pointing to the
various resources that we have. I think a wiki section where we can
collect "user provided config examples and tipps and tricks" would also
be cool.

I'd be offering a simple shared webhost, which is offered without
traffic limitations (but a fair use policy so I bet would
complain quickly if we started to relay the world's internet traffic
through them).

Access via FTP/SFTP or shell. I could also set up a wiki/joomla or
whatever people who would be doing some web work prefer....
