OK, I agree that these are all concerns to think about
(especially the SPAM one ! <g>), but every single Open Source project
out there usually uses a .org domain, so I think we should make the switch,
and if we decide to do it, then we should do it now instead of later.

Anyway, IMHO doing or not doing such a thing should be decided via voting
in the Wine community (unless CodeWeavers is definitely against a switch,
as they're hosting .com/.org; IOW: veto right).

Anyone care to do that voting ?

Or should I simply volunteer to collect "votes" ?
You could hardly call this "transparent" voting, though,
since I'd be the one to collect (and manipulate ;-) them then.

Or what about creating a BugZilla bug instead for the voting process ?
That way you'd have transparent voting, and after all it is a project activity,
so using BugZilla for that would be at least a slight bit justified.
