linux.conf.au domain faces uncertain future
A proposed review of little-used second-level domains by .au Domain adminstration (auDA) has left a cloud hanging over the domain for Australia's biggest Linux conference.
At the auDA board meeting in Melbourne yesterday, auDA policy officer Jo Lim said that future plans for the .conf.au and .info.au domains would be examined later this year. While management of existing domains in those spaces is being handled by AusRegistry, which manages most registry systems for .au domains, no new registrations in either domain have been accepted for some time.
The only current active owner of a .conf.au domain is Linux Australia, which uses linux.conf.au as both the site and brand for its annual conference. There are around 15 users of .info.au, including National Science Week and Quit Now.
