The public site I am talking about is the "official" website of the
Firebird oss venture, where the community communicates with the rest
of the world. This is the classical use for a .org domain.
The development group is not an organization as such, it's a "unit",
so to speak, of the community as a whole. Often a subdomain is used
for sites of a division. But in any case the "public relations" site
of the community must be on the .org domain.
I would point the .com to the same site, because one thing is sure:
Most people who type .com instead of .org want to get to the same
place. They simply typed the wrong domain. again: the TLD isn't a
As you said, the site on sourceforge is for developers. They know the
url and basically it can remain the same, maybe make a subdomain of
FirebirdSql.org point there as well.
