We want to hold teh domain for the fsf, here in austria the domain is
hod by "Förderverein für Sozialforschung" which has nothing to do with
software. So we decided to get similiar domains and hand them over, if there
is a real fsfe in Austria. We had a very goold talk with Georg Greve an
dBernhard Reiter at the german Linuxtag about this point. 
Some members of the FFS will be members of the chapter Austria. So
everything is under control,

We were to fast and we wanted to get the domains.
