Open Source belong nowhere else but .COOP @OpenSourceOrg @TheASF @mamba_xoops


The number of open source initiatives that are on .org I mean the problem with this is they are a collaboration of development staff, admin and the community that contribute to them, they don’t actually belong in any other business registration class than that of a Cooperative -> not for profit is incorrect class of business for an open source project they are actually a cooperative which is it own independent charter unlike NFP which come under the Company, Organisation & Government charter at the United Nations.

Plus .coop is the oldest realm (it not even a tld and operates on it own) here the next one is .mil then followed by .io then all the TLD after it and transpose to other places apart from Internet Technology base.
