This might be an opportunity to do something that probably should have
happened anyway: It would sure look a lot nicer if the Wiki lived at,

  http://wiki.openvoting.org/

or,

  http://openvoting.org/wiki/

Or something else along similar lines. The whole
gnosis.python-hosting.com is nice enough for my private stuff, but kinda
confusing when people think of OVC. Even gnosis.cx, likewise.

Actually, the list archive is a little similar. I'm more than happy to
host that (and such will assure the archive stays intact and available).
But I've mentioned before that I thought it would be good to get
subdomains to resolve to the relevant IP addresses. I'm not sure
exactly how that's configured on the OVC host, but I know it's doable.
So, e.g.

  http://lists.openvoting.org/

Would point to 207.44.218.61:

I.e.:

  PING gnosis.python-hosting.com: 64 data bytes
  72 bytes from 207.44.218.61: icmp_seq=0. time=80. ms

And likewise wiki.openvoting.org could point to some UCSC host, or
whatever else. In terms of giving out URLs (and linking to them) it
looks a lot nicer... but it doesn't break any links that have already
been published, since DNS will still lookup gnosis.python-hosting.com as
also pointing at 207.44.218.61.
