[XESAM] Moving business elsewhere?

Hi Xesames and xdg subscribers,

Our project creation request[1] has been stalled for almost four months now.
I really don't think we can keep on abusing the xdg list anymore, and as it
appears we are not going to get a xesam at freedesktop.org list I think we have
to move our business elsewhere if something doesn't happen really soon (like
in the coming week).

We have multiple other needs like a shared version control system, a
website, a wiki, and a bug tracker.

I have bought http://xesam.org and we can have hosting there as well.
Whether or not we will actually use xesam.org as the host or just as a link
is open for discussion. Google groups have grown popular recently and
Canonicals Launchpad is not a bad product either.

I don't know if this should be reflected in our namespacing. We have dbus
paths and xml namespaces to think about. I would not like to point an xml
namespace at some place where we cannot put something, on the other hand I
would hate to strip the org.freedesktop from our dbus paths, I would hate it
even more if we used intermixed namespacing of xesam.org and

Anyways, comments welcome. A swift resultion of bug 10114 is even more
