In my eyes, it doesn't matter if it is running on Duke, Red Hat, or even
Microsoft hardware, as long as it remains operational.  We should be
able to make it work on Red Hat hardware without needing to use a
sub-domain.  My concern isn't with who's maintaining it, but having the
@fedoraproject.org name improves perception quite a bit.  I also
wouldn't complain if we did use a sub-domain, if that would help. 
Having the distinguishing name has advantages that span from helping
dissolve the image of Fedora as a patsy for Red Hat to just providing a
little extra pride for the community.  If we do #2 on #1 hardware, I
think that would be a great solution.  :-)
