There's plenty of "locale" domains, like
http://id.fedoracommunity.org/, but I don't know of cases where we've
used it for other things. The guidelines page clearly indicate that
that was the intention though.

cute, even if the twisted use of .net kind of pains my 1990s sysadmin

Yeah, this wasn't really mean to be a _change_ but a focused "download

If this is really going to help success, I won't -1 it, but there's a
little bit of a chicken and egg problem — if we do something like this,
I'd like it to be for something we feel pretty confident is going to be
around and self-sustaining in a year or two.
