Welcome, glad your here!

I do have a direct comment on this thread however. I did a search and found

I would rank Libre SoC as 1.5 (between Libre-SoC and Libre-SOC) in my
preferred order.

I think we should use libre-soc.org, and have all the other domains
redirect to it. I think libresoc.ca may not be the best TLD because
Libre-SoC is an international community, not a specifically canadian one
(acknowledging that .org is sort-of a US TLD, due to internet history,
however, it doesn't have a country in the name, unlike .ca).
