For a thorough solution, we should probably switch all our
infrastructure to a different domain name too, preferably one which
doesn't mention "openstack" as a substring at all. This would
actually solve a number of other challenges as well, like our
current shared control of the openstack.org domain with the dev team
at the foundation (which presently limits what either the foundation
or the community can do with that domain because we have to take
each others' workflows into account).
