there are no reasons to hold back the switch, so let's do this in the next
couple of days. Kate already notified the maintainer of openstreetmap.org DNS
that we are going to change the IP address. Once the DNS is changed, it will
fully propagate within 24h. So during those 24h we will have to run both sites
in read-only mode to keep everything in sync.
Are there any other issues that we need to resolve before the switch, like,
email issue - https://github.com/hotosm/hotosm/issues/28 ?
I've noticed that google analytics is missing from the www.dev site...
Other then that, I've already added aliases for 'hot.openstreetmap.org' and
'hot.osm.org' (which has been activated
https://github.com/hotosm/hotosm/issues/26) to the web server, and they should
just work. However I'm not sure if you need to change some aliases on the web site?
