Paul asks if we can host dns and website, and forward mail to him.

It's a static site, should be easy to host if he sends us a tarball and updates registrar to point at our DNS servers.

Step 1 is to get tarball and we set it up.
Step 2 is to update our DNS
Step 3 is to update mail forwarding
Step 4 is to point registrar at our DNS servers
Step 5 is to update dns to point at our web mirrors and confirm it all works.
Step 6. There is no step 6.

The tarball is online here:

Let me know once its downloaded, as I'd then like to remove it.

comment:4 Changed 7 years ago by phobos

got it, thanks!

comment:5 Changed 7 years ago by robgjansen

Great. I removed the file.

FYI, the existing is getting taken offline by NRL on Feb 1st.

Comment by Paul who cannot explain why he hasn't gotten an account:

Today is's last day at NRL.
Step 1 is done.
Please let me know when Step 2 is done.
Don't think Step 3 is needed for this but feel free to discuss.
I will do Step 4 as soon as I hear Step 2 is done and
any needed clarification of Step 3.

cc'ing weasel since I bet he wants to be involved in the "update our dns" step.

comment:9 Changed 7 years ago by weasel

Do we want to point things to anywhere specific, or are we handling mail for and handle the http for on our infrastructure?

comment:10 Changed 7 years ago by cypherpunks

(Paul again):
There shouldn't be any such mail I think. I don't know the answer
to the second half of your question (the http), but my guess is yes.

comment:11 Changed 7 years ago by weasel

Ok, so either no mail or just hostmaster@ and postmaster@.

Are you able to add the DNSSEC related bits to the registry, if I give them to you? Or can you only update the list of nameservers?

comment:12 Changed 7 years ago by cypherpunks

Not sure. I haven't visit the registrar site c. once a year
to confirm I'm still alive so would have to check (after I hunt
up how to get in there again.)

This exchange is a bit odd for trac. If you remind me what channel to
find I can install a client on this box and try to remember how irc works.
(Something else I haven't done for many years.)

We are in #tor-dev on

I don't have the website tarball yet, so currently our zone still points www to

I've attached a torrent file for Rob's tarball to the ticket in case you haven't gotten a copy from another source yet.

Do paul/rob/aaron need to update html code?

No, I think the version currently on is fine.

We might want to get it moved to a registrar where torproject-admin can get some control over the domain, but that's a different ticket.

Closing this one.
