Hi Mike, I'd like to get an update on what's happening with the PloneEdu site. I still own these domain names, and they are all expiring on Feb. 2nd.
PLONEEDU.COM PLONEEDU.INFO PLONEEDU.ORG PLONENGO.COM PLONENGO.INFO PLONENGO.ORG I would love to transfer these to the Plone Foundation and then have them pointing to the appropriate IP address.
