While I agree that they are a good demonstration of Gentoo technologies (in 
this case, catalyst), I don't know that a domain is necessary to show them 
off.  Especially, in this case, domains that have pointed to a blank page for 
some time now. If there is an awesome livecd for a game, then we should 
showboat that somewhere under www.gentoo.org/  (I'm holding out for 
catalyst-mame that makes a cd with your roms)  :)

I just see some issues with this in the future:

- having to pay for the domains (vs just using www.gentoo.org, or 
games.gentoo.org in this case)
- other groups wanting their own domain to showboat their product.  Pretty 
soon we could have gentoo-hardened.{com,net,org}, gentoo-embedded, etc. etc.   
gets to be sticky from an infra point of view, too.

When the -games domains were purchased, their purpose was to make a seperate 
entity (corporate at the time).  I don't see why we should seperate Gentoo 
products like that..   Give them a space in *.gentoo.org and if they need 
more exposure, highlight them on the main website.

This could get sticky, we don't have much experience with money going out 
yet.  :)    If the register that gentoo.org uses takes paypal, we can do that 
easily.  Could you look into that?

Thanks Nick!
