Well, it's in the cloud, so it's more descriptive, IMHO.
And sorry for the quick change, we needed new ssl certs very soon, so
thought it would make sense to get them with these names.

Well, for what? We have talked about moving the non builder parts of
copr into regular infrastructure in the past, but we didn't do it for
whatever reasons. Doing so would get us some advantages and some
Advantages: could use the proxy system to cache things and also do HA
with multiple frontends or possibly even backends if we wanted. Could
mean frontend/backend/sign/git are more stable as they are not on the
Disadvantages: would need to figure out how to shuffle around storage,
as we have copr storage tied to the cloud right now. It would be some
work to move things around and get it all working right.

The problem with that is when the thing is down, users have no way to
look at that. They just see it's down and have the expectation that
they already do in their minds.
I was talking to Kevin about this today and came up with what I think
is a good solution.
We have a fedoracommunity.org
domain which already is provided for
communities that want to set up Fedora related sites. Those sites
* understood as owned and managed by someone other than the Fedora
* granted trademark approval to use Fedora marks to associate closely
with the Fedora Project
Currently this domain is used exclusively for local communities. For
example, a Czech community might run a site for Czech speaking
community members at cz.fedoracommunity.org
, and we simply provide a
DNS pointer for them.
However, the use case is exactly the same for a technical project not
hosted/managed by the Infrastructure team. The owner seeks to brand
it as Fedora and associate it with the Project, which is good for
everyone involved. But it doesn't automatically inherit support from
for this use makes a lot of sense to me.
*And* it brings an immediate affiliation with Fedora just from the
name, without misunderstanding. It's very clear the site is community
