mod_rewrite isn't for what you want here... If we did want to do this, we'd just add wiki.mozilla.com as a ServerAlias to make it work for the current wiki or use Redirect to change from wiki.mozilla.com to wiki.mozilla.org.

However, this isn't wanted for various reasons. The wiki is part of the mozilla.org Project and community, not the Mozilla Corporation. There's no need to do this, anyway, and if we did do it, we would have to do the same for almost every app, and there's no way we're going to do that. If you enter "mozilla wiki" in Google, wiki.mozilla.org is what comes up.

Thanks for the request, but it just isn't something that is a real need.
