I started looking at the 1 click setup and we need a domain to finish
setup.. So, what domain do we want to run this on. I think we should
probably do as our other team tools are all
under That said, issues and ci were originally named as
such because it's more "discoverable" than youtrack and teamcity, but
I feel like is pretty common now so it should be fine?

Also I see nothing about a charge for a 1-click which seemed silly in
the first place but i wanted to rule it out, you just pay for the node
which will be fine.

Also, I'm going to name the server carrier, unless anyone has any objections.

In the meantime, I'm going to do some cleanup on dodo (the server we
were building to handle all of the email) and remove mailman3 so I can
move it to a cheaper node.

I think that covers just about everything for now, but I'm making
myself a note that I need to get a list of email accounts to forward
and stuff.
