I own the ocaml.net domain. I registered it a few years ago when it expired, to prevent it from being snatched by a squatter. I set up a web redirect to ocaml.org and mail forwarding at that time, but was unable to stay in contact with an OCaml site administrator.

I want to transfer the domain to the proper owner. No payment is desired — I just want to donate the domain. Please let me know what steps to take.

Hi @sharpjs, @avsm is the delegate in charge of ocaml.org as directed by @xavierleroy. I believe one of them can tell you the appropriate action to take.

Thanks for your quick reflexes and forethought -- I'm sure everyone in the community appreciates your contribution (even if they don't know it, yet 😛).

Dear @sharpjs, thank you very much for doing this! The owner of the domain should be @xavierleroy, but I can handle the administrative end. The appropriate Gandi handle is XL27-GANDI (owned by Xavier Leroy and where the current ocaml.org domain is held). If you would like to coordinate over email, please free to contact me at anil@recoil.org.

Email sent to @avsm. Let me know if it does not reach you. Thanks!

Retry email sent to @avsm, this time from my Gmail account, in case the first one didn't make it. The authorization code was included in this email. Hope it hasn't expired already. Let me know if you need me to get a newer code.

Were are we on this issue? @avsm ?

ocaml.net was successfully transferred to Gandi last December, and I'm now the proud owner of this domain!

Unless I goofed again, @avsm has technical admin rights on ocaml.net and can set up the DNS. But there's nothing urgent.

@avsm It would be great if we could have ocaml.net forward to ocaml.org.
