Change of nameservers for Wikimedia.org.tr
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I'm writing on behalf of Wikimedia User Group Turkey. We'd like to host a website and email account on wikimedia.org.tr domain name. Wikimedia.org.tr domain name is owned by Wikimedia, and was registered after our request.

We'd like to have the following nameservers set for the domain name. We'll be setting up rest on our system.

Usually, only chapters are allowed to use wikimedia.[ccTLD] domain names. We may be able to make an exception in this case, however. One question I have first, though, is whether the domain name would be used only by Wikimedia Community User Group Turkey or whether it would also be used for Wikimedians of Turkic Languages User Group. I do not want the use of the domain name to cause tension between the two groups. @HakanIST, I know you are involved in both groups, so hopefully it will not be an issue.

.tr is the country code tld (domain extension) for Turkey not for the language. The Wikimedians of Turkic Languages User Group is a language based international group from different countries; therefore i can assure that Turkic Languages Group is not interested in using a country based domain.

Given the answer above, can progress be made on this?

For the SRE side, regarding DNS, @BBlack is probably the best person to be notified here.

Change 634925 had a related patch set uploaded (by Ladsgroup; owner: Ladsgroup):

Some more weeks on, I repeat the request to make progress, or at least offer an ETA for this. Thank you.

CRoslof claimed this task.

I have updated the nameservers to the ones requested.

Nameservers list doesn't look updated. @CRoslof could you check?

The change to the nameservers should now be completed. I submitted the nameserver change request on November 16, but it took a while for the .tr registry to approve/implement it.
