We're on the same page here. I mentioned it because it was raised as a
concern in the previous (canceled) vote thread, and I wanted to report back

We (the current owners of discussed this off list. We'd be willing
to donate it to ASF, but we don't feel we really need the domain, so
there's not really a motivation on our end to burden the ASF with the cost
of maintaining it. If the Foundation has an interest in managing the
domain, we'd gladly transfer it, but it's not something we think will
benefit the project. So, we thought it best to just let it lapse.
