SPI has a plan for transferring both domains into their ownership. Keith's asked for SPI to allow us to continue to run our own DNS servers, and to make sure that FDO admins can update DNS records without any forwarding.
Additionally, SPI asked if we were OK with using a different DNS registrar: Gandi. The board voted to approve this request.

We would like to get ledger data directly from SPI so we can keep better track of our expenses.
