DFGH.net - contact needed - and other domains

Postby michaeldlr » Mon Oct 31, 2022 12:36 pm

Hi,

We had a realisation that we don't have contact to the administrator of the domain dfgh.net. We're looking for anyone who know show to contact them. Please get in touch with myself and/or SysKoll by BBS PM if you are, or have a way of contacting, the domain administrator.

Just a reminder about this domain - it was "donated" to spamgourmet long long ago as one of the first alternative domains. It has been one of the longest running and very reliable domains. When this happened, we understand the person who donated it kept the domain on their own domain account unlike the other published alternative domains. We just had a little scare when we realised that it was about to need a renewal and we couldn't do it ourselves. It was however renewed which apparently happened manually this time. Now we'd just like to get in touch with the person who owns it so we have more clarity for future,. That's important since this is quite a widely used domain.

We'll also be checking through private domains that are pointing at spamgourmet, and would like to check we have all of those contacts. If you haven't been in touch recently and you have such a domain, that might be good, though these are less urgent since we believe they are largely only used by their own specific users.

all the best
Michael (spamgourmet FOSS project admin)

Private messages on the BBS are probably a good way. You might want to contact both myself and one of Josiah or SysKoll for now. Longer term, everyone directly involved in admin and almost everyone involved in development is on Signal. Since, obviously, some of the private domain administration has to be secret and improving security there would be good that's probably the best place.

As a summary, right now we have
* BBS - this remains the best public support and discussion area - bring up problems you have here first - PMs remain the best way of starting contact.
* GitHub - you must be here if you want to contribute code, translations, documentation and so on. It's best if we know who you are otherwise we might decide we have to rewrite code but create a new account if you want to disconnect from the rest of your developer life.
* Signal - any private or security discussions - general chat between developers and so on. Also anything that needs rapid response.

The admins don't have time to read the BBS reliably so people who know their way around things and can gateway from here to a much more filtered version in Signal are valuable.

Is it safe to continue using dfgh.net, or is there a risk it will stop working when next due for renewal?
