Description

Hello admin peoples,

The Tor Research Safety Board will soon be running a hotcrp submission server on 198.96.155.11. (It is maintained by Ian, and the address is right next door to submit.petsymposium.org.)

Can we make a cname or equivalent, so "safetyboard.torproject.org" sends people to 198.96.155.11?

The goal is to have a better way for people to submit their safety board requests than "try mailing Roger".

Complicating factor: when hotcrp sets a cookie, the cookie would get set in the torproject.org domain, so browsers would then offer it to all the other torproject.org sites too. Hm.

One option weasel suggests is that we could put it on safetyboard.torproject.net.

That would isolate it from other Tor sites. But it would also potentially confuse people who thought we were at .org and didn't understand to go somewhere else.

How's this for a plan: we put it on the .net domain, and tell people that address, but also we run a tiny website at safetyboard.torproject.org that does a redirect to the .net version. That way if people get confused they will still recover.
