Oi, I wanted to ask a question to the riseup techies, website says I should post a ticket, and to post a ticket I must have an account on user.riseup, and that takes weeks (says website) unless I’m vouched by 2 existing users.

Well, I was wondering if the following dns trick is possible :
The riseup group is at we.riseup.org/groupname, so all pages within
the group is like we.riseup.org/groupname/pagename. I was wondering
if it would be possible to do a dns transfer that would allow me to
display we.riseup.org/groupname/page1 as
subdomain.mydomain.tld/page1 . I’m not familiar with how it might
conflict with the https-everywhere they have.

sounds if you would to do some URL rewriting 1. see howto links below in case you use apache 2 or nginx 3 as http-server.

Another question if I may: If we want to set up some sort of
accepting policy in a similar way that user.riseup.org is doing. Like
you’d need two vouches to be allowed an account. To prevent police


I assume that micah and elijah could help You if they are not too busy (both @riseup.net). Join the development group 4 or maybe open a ticket in the user interface. There are also mailinglists and IRC 5.

Good luck!
