Actually, my plan is just to have it forwarding to
subversion.tigris.org -- which is what it currently does.

To be more precise:

With certain restrictions, I informally consider subversion.org to be
owned by all Subversion full committers who have been such for more
than three years (or something roughly like that). The only reason I
haven't formalized this is lack of time to do the paperwork, etc.
Been a bit swamped lately.

The restrictions are merely that I don't want it to detract from
Subversion's home URL as provided by CollabNet. So as long as
Subversion *has* a home URL provided by CollabNet, and CollabNet's
relationship with Subversion remains more or less what it currently
is, I just plan to forward subversion.org to that URL. If those
circumstances ever changed, then I would consult the above-described
group of committers for what to do with subversion.org.

The important thing is for the Subversion project to have a single,
clear home site. We have that right now. These discussions of what
"the project" comprises might change how we arrange that home site,
but they won't change the fact of its existence or its uniqueness.

(That's why the subversion.com thing is so annoying -- what they're
doing is impersonation, beyond the point of plausible deniability
IMHO. Fortunately, I don't think they've gotten much traction on the
Net with it, at least so far.)

Hope this helps,
-Karl
