We can change the page title to something like "OSAF -- Home of
Chandler Project". And make half of the osafoundation.org page a
large image link to chandlerproject -- something nice looking like
the one on mozilla.org.
If people don't click on the link then I really doubt they would have
clicked on the link to visit hub or downloaded Chandler Desktop so we
didn't actually lose any users and we keep our page rank.
All of these people who aren't going from osafoundation.org to
chandlerproject.org, are they deciding they don't want to check out
the product for some reason? Did they click on the link in the blog
just to check out organzation/product but not download it ( I do this
all the time by the way )? The redirect doesn't help us get them as
users and does drop our page rank.
