That of course is a good idea, and in fact there has been talk
about such an undertaking already.  I'm not aware of anyone
having actually started such a project (specifically directed
towards the needs of Free Software developers and Free Software
businesses) yet.

Well, the someone who probably didn't pay the annual
registration fee is the owner of FreeDevelopers, but I don't
think he's "playing legal games".  When I emailed him last week
about the need to renew the domain asap, he replied, quickly,
with these words "This is strange since the domains are on
automatic annual renewal, but I will find out what is going on
and get it fixed immediately."  Nothing more has been heard from
him since then.

Sorry about the missing link; please refer to

Let's say, give one-two weeks for the DotGNU Steering committee to
reach a decision on what needs to be done, then give me a week to
fully implement it.

My view is that we simply need to cut out FreeDevelopers
completely... and I expect that this may quite possibly mean
giving up on using for quite some time.  In this
case the lists will probably be moved to become address@hidden

Fixed, thank you for the bug report.
