Thank you very much! I have some technical questions related to managing the

We migrated the Extensions website over to sourceforge hardware. We've restored authentication with the openoffice.org accounts, make some module updates and updated the site to work with PHP 5.3.
As of today, the Extensions website is available at this address located on our domain, at the following address:
We've modified it to work under whatever domain name the community chooses, and we plan to keep the site up and running under the above domain to allow the community to provide us with feedback and to allow for time to get the final DNS setup in place. We will work with the PMCC and the Apache Infra team to point DNS to the new location as soon as we can.
I did an nslookup and the IP address is currently 220.127.116.11. Is this a
Obviously we can redirect URLs to the aoo-extensions.sf.net domain, but it would
be better if the sites can keep an openoffice.org url.
To test the current ability I modified my /etc/hosts
With that http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/ returns:

I would propose that the site have the following three possible domain names:
aoo-extensions.sourceforge.net extensions.openoffice.org extensions.services.openoffice.org
All with the same IP. Is this feasible? Or, do we need to pick one as the
primary and redirect the others?
I think that causes problems with Google. They would likely sense this as "duplicate content" and demote the relevancy of the content.
Two ways out: pick one URL as the primary one and redirect the other two to the primary one. Google likes this.
The other way is to declare the "canonical" URL in the HTML:
I'd add that you might want to consider which one is the best "canonical" in terms of SEO, apparently among candidates extensions.openoffice.org has the highest google PR, as of today. Actually this maybe due to the lack of availability of extensions.services.openoffice.org, though.
We are planning to get the Templates website up on sourceforge hardware one week from today.
Here are some next steps to consider:
1 - Help users to switch their accounts smoothly. We can make sure that existing users can login using their openoffice.org password and automatically convert them to local users when they login, so that all users who logged in to the site before the Oracle shutdown will be preserved and will be able to see and edit their content.
2 - Help market AOO Extensions and Templates, e.g. interviewing creators and sharing the news via our media.
3 - Evaluate the upgrade of the Extensions/Templates website from Drupal 5/6 to Drupal 7, and eventually do it (long term).
We are looking forward to your feedback and suggestions.
