I received the following email:

Hello, is a non-profit society (founded 1995) members in Finland which provides our members (among e-mail and SIP forwarding etc) a subdomain delegation for the member's own DNS and servers, e.g. (my server), (another board member), etc. Members can have their own DNS so there is quite a lot of subdomain activity. Many internet-activists in Finland are members.

We would like to have added to the public suffix list to make sure cookies would be protected between our member personal domains.

I am the chairman of and the contact for our domain and IP address space. Unfortunately the .fi whois does not show e-mail addresses (we have complained to them about it). You can find my e-mail as the contact for our IP address space (e.g. -> -> RIPE information). The telephone number in the whois is my mobile phone, you may call that instead if you wish to verify this information that way (I am in the UTC+2 timezone).

The requested diff is attached to this message as a file and also provided below as it is very simple:

Patch v.1

Requesting 1.9.2 approval. Part of general public suffix list maintenance. (After this, I'd expect to get approval for 1.9.1 and 1.9.0 also.)

Shouldn't this have landed on trunk first?
Comment 6 User image Gervase Markham [:gerv] 2009-12-11 17:38:24 PST
Yeah, oops. I thought I'd done that. When I noticed, I went to land it on trunk, but there was an orange tinderbox. It's gone now, so I'll land it.
