I wonder who is paying for the domain name "debian.org". DNS registration
is not free now. Is Ian M. paying out of his personal pocket as a
donation to the Debian Project? Are there other Debian "benefactors"? Or
is there a for profit organization behind?
I think whether or not it is possible to have a Debian-related address will
depend on who is financing Debian.
In fact, I would like to know more about this issue.
