Sure, but vger and ftp are both suffixed with "kernel.org" If
Transmeta or Red Hat ever flake out, it's easier to redirect the domain

If nothing else it's consistent naming that keeps with the Principle of
Least Surprise :)

Check out Martin's original announcement, as well as his recent one.
I'm pretty pleased: they have staff that will help triage bugs and keep
the garbage level low. Hopefully leaving the kernel hackers to do
nothing more than fix bugs :)
