 Replying to [comment:2 wildintellect]:
 > I have reservations, only that org.ua is unlikely to be an available
 domain? At least in my understanding of the DNS system. Looking at
 http://org.ua  (Via google translate) it does appear to be a valid request
 to register a subdomain under that.

 Maybe I was unclear. There are no problems with registering subdomain in
 org.ua zone, so final domain will be osgeo.org.ua not org.ua.

 > We can easily configure ua.osgeo.org or ukraine.osgeo.org with no added
 cost. If you want to register a new domain then osgeo.ua seems the likely
 candidate. If you want osgeo.org.ua I think that might be handled by your
 chapter as it appears that one must register via org.ua website or another
 Ukraine based registrar. Since no on SAC speaks Ukrainian it might be
 technically best for you to handle it.

 Regarding osgeo.ua domain. Under current
 [https://hostmaster.ua/policy/Policy_UA_en-w2.htm .UA domain Policy],
 domain names like name.ua are delegated only to proper owners of

 Unfortunately there is no local chapter here in Ukraine.

 > Now that I read the original request I do have another objection,
 assigning the either osgeo.ua or osgeo.org.ua to a single lab seems out of
 line unless there are plans to share it with other labs that may join
 later or local chapters that may form out of it. Is this request for a
 single lab?

 We planned to use this domain for all activities around OSGeo, not only
 for lab. Here is how we planned to use it: osgeo.org.ua — for local
 chapter (in future), lab.osgeo.org.ua — for lab, maybe other subdomains
 for other activities.

 Unfortunately we have very limited resources now and can't establish local
 chapter, so seems it is better for us to register another domain
 exclusively for lab, e.g. osgeo-lab.org.ua. Any objections?
