Description Murray Cumming (reporter) 2008-05-02 13:49:32 UTC
For some reason I typed in news.maemo.org and I found that any non-existing
sub-domain goes to repository.maemo.org. This does not seem like a good
default. Surely www.gnome.org would better?
Comment 1 Niels Breet maemo.org 2008-05-08 12:30:38 UTC
Gnome.org? :)

I'll ask why this host was picked as default.
Comment 2 Quim Gil nokia 2008-05-08 13:42:02 UTC
No reason why afaik and it can simply point to maemo.org, but better ask
Marcell just in case.

Comment 4 Quim Gil nokia 2008-07-19 16:29:57 UTC
This is an easyfix problem and I agree with the proposal of redirecting to
maemo.org any invalid *.maemo.org

Setting as MEDIUM for review in next sprint meeting.
Comment 5 Marcell Lengyel maemo.org 2008-07-22 11:46:51 UTC
I was not around when this was implemented, so I have no idea why all
non-existing maemo.org domain name points to stage/repository. It is set on the
DNS level, so I will have to request the change from the ISP. Let's hope that
nothing depends on this "feature". At least in the future people will not be
able to use the "repostory" trick anymore to bypass the cache network.
Comment 6 Quim Gil nokia 2008-07-31 11:23:53 UTC
Now http://lalala.maemo.org is not redirected, you get a simple error page.
Comment 7 Marcell Lengyel maemo.org 2008-08-11 16:08:37 UTC
The error page is coming from Squid proxy. That is a bit of an uncharted
territory for me, so I asked help from Ferenc.
Comment 8 Marcell Lengyel maemo.org 2008-08-12 14:09:28 UTC
Ferenc did some squid configuration magic and now all non-existing .maemo.org
domains should end up in maemo.org.
