heya Ian (& everyone else) :)
This is where timezones and work can make my replies very late!
Normally I would be extremely happy to take it off your hands, but there has been some discussion about a change of name for PocketSword . . . Apparently some cultures don't like the Bible being compared to a weapon, as it reminds them of the Crusades or something like that? I'm open to suggestions for what to (possibly!) rename it to, but if people want to do that, please email me privately so as to not have a discussion like that on a developers mailing list! Or, if you want other ppl to see your suggestion, post it to the user forums: http://www.crosswire.org/forums/mvnforum/listthreads?forum=16
So, it's probably best to let it fade away, if the name is possibly going to change sometime soon?
Thanks heaps Ian :)

>> Many of our project leaders indeed do register unique domains and maintain these themselves, and we'd be happy to support them with web space and the like if they want to point their DNS entry to our server, but it is the responsibility of that project to maintain registration of a unique domain if they desire to have one.
>> So, in conclusion, you're welcome to point the domain to our servers and we'll do the work to setup our servers to point request to the domain to the appropriate docroot and other services, and obviously Nic or someone else has every right to take you up on your offer to transfer ownership and responsibility of the domain name, but CrossWire currently does not admin ownership of project-unique domain names.
