I think that might be irrelevant. We have been trying to follow other LoCo teams as far as consistency is concerned. I know there were opinions for and against this, but I believe we would have the option of using http://louisiana.ubuntu-us.org/.
But even if we decide against that and choose a different name I would prefer to err on the side of caution and check before registering a domain.
I still don't see how its consistant when only 4 teams have that style according to ubuntu-us.org. If that is the plan for all the states, then I agree, but I haven't seen anything like that. So, if we can make it as short, rememberable and relavent as possible I think that would be better.
When in doubt, Ask!
Any Questions?Code:09:48:32 [ r2d2rogers] cross question from me in -locoteams: What seems to be the consensus about domain name format for a loco team? 09:52:16 [ Zelut] r2d2rogers: state.ubuntu-us.org 09:52:33 [ Zelut] r2d2rogers: once your team is approved we can get you all setup with that. 09:54:46 [ r2d2rogers] Cool 09:54:47 [ Zelut] prior to that it is suggested to use your team wiki as your web presence. 09:55:20 [ r2d2rogers] is is full louisiana.... or is la... ok too? 09:55:57 [ r2d2rogers] if we use that domain is it required that we use the canonical hosting? 09:56:03 [ Zelut] no 09:57:13 [ r2d2rogers] So we can use our own hosting and use the state.ubuntu-us.org 09:58:18 [ r2d2rogers] is it possible to get the abbriviation as an alias or pointer to the longname.ubuntu-us.org? 10:16:20 [ Zelut] r2d2rogers: probably 10:16:38 [ r2d2rogers] Great 10:16:58 [ r2d2rogers] our debate in team was wanting to keep it short and easy to share. 10:17:03 [ r2d2rogers] Thanks!
Works for me!

what if we used, ubuntu.louisianalinux.org?
I think we've decided that we're doing louisiana.ubuntu-us.org once we're approved.
Plus, if louisianalinux.org is going to be a non-LoCo endeavor I don't know that we want to seem to be affiliated. My two cents.
I'm thinking that it would be a good URL to use until we are an approved team. I really think more can be done with the web presence than a wiki can provide.
I think after the next meeting I'll put up a poll on Launchpad about it.
