We don't think we should point alioth.d.o things to other places in DNS.
We can, on a case by case basis, provide http 301 redirectors for
specific sites to non-alioth names for a time. (A year, two, three.
Not, however, for forever. So there needs to be a clear commitment to
start publishing and using the new name.)
The target of the redirect may also be run with DSA's help on debian.org
infrastructure, or not. Again, these are case-by-case discussions.
