This would really be suboptimal since the community
really expects to use the extensions site both for downloading and
uploading extensions: unaffiliated members involved with extensions
development used to outnumber unaffiliated members working on core.

OK, then it's probably time to decide on a DNS zone corresponding to
what used to be * and dedicated to community
resources, since the Apache Extras option does not seems practical
seeing the dozens of sites needed. Maybe "*" is
not explicit enough: would "*" be better?
Shorter options?
