Hello,

I know that this domain works when you append www. in front of it. I
also tend to write a bit in the wiki when i can.

Subdomains where initially created to point at various computers. In
the "old age", the services like ftp, smtp, pop and http would all
have their own machines, so it maked sense to use www. Because every
subdomain would represent a computer.

In the actual world, where reverse-proxy is the king, where http is
the most common used protocol and subdomains are hijacked to represent
different web-services, I think it makes sense to espect that a domain
returns a valid http service.

That's why i'm pointing this issue out. Do you type
http://nitro.rubyforge.org or http://www.nitro.rubyforge.org ?  If you
look at microsoft ads, they tell you to go to microsoft.com, not
www.microsoft.com. It's the same for nitrohq.

Hmm, maybe this sounds too harsh. In any case, i'm just trying to give
my opinion.

Peace and long live nitro :-)
