It’s fine to host the repo on Savannah: we can ask for a new repo under
the Guix umbrella, the downside being that access control will be the
same as for the other repos (we can only grant access to all the repos
or none of them.)  If you plan to open it more to formal methods people
that do not yet contribute to Guix, it might be easier to use a separate
repo.  You tell us!

As for the domain name: I think it would be fine to use as long as the web site follows GNU and Guix
policy, which mostly means referring only to free software, avoiding the
phrase “open source” to describe it, and probably avoiding institution
logos and such (I don’t think there’s any written policy but I would
personally find it out of place on  Anyway, the two of you are
webmasters so you probably know this better than I do.  IOW, if you want
to flatter your employers and labs, you might want to opt for a separate
web site.  :-)

Maintainers, what do you think?

Anyway, step #1 is to get a web page ready.  :-)
