In the early days of this project, org.openbmc was used for DBus naming. At a
later date, we stumbled onto this in the DBus specification:
Interface names should start with the reversed DNS domain name of the
author of the interface (in lower-case), like interface names in Java.
but openbmc.org was not available. So the effort to move all dbus names
from org-openbmc to xyz-openbmc_project was born.
Fast forward to today, and openbmc.org has been donated to the project
by the prior owner (thanks Facebook!)

I’m not sure _moving_ is the correct word. I’d guess that gerrit.openbmc_project.xyz
will be a CNAME for openbmc.org for some amount of time. Right Andrew?

What do we want it to be? I’d vote for openbmc.org. Unless someone
argues otherwise I think you can safely assume that openbmc.org is the
“official” domain for this project.

If this is what people want I don’t see a problem with that. But the
project will (eventually) own both domains, so the urgency goes down a
bit I feel.

We are in the process of transferring the xyz domain and the IANA PEN
from Patrick to TLF. There isn’t any resistance on Patrick’s end, if
that makes anyone feel better. It is just a matter of getting it done.

Have I answered this?
