Come on, the rate of new blends creation is not really high -- how many
were there last year? Probably less then one. Does this really
significantly increase your load?

I would have no problem to have <blend>.debian.org pointing to
/srv/blends.debian.org/<blend> for every blend. This would also keep the
blends web infrastructure locally maintainable for the blends team,
actually lowering the load for the main web team.

And, again: <blend>.debian.org sounds for me like the canonical source
for a blend for end users.

However, this just popped up as an idea since our web guide (Kalles
Design) recommends a subdomain specific main menu. If it appears really
complicated, one can live without it.

Best regards
