[AstroPy] transferring ownership of astropy.org to numfocus

Currently the astropy.org domain is held by STScI. There was recent  
discussion amongst the astropy coordinators whether this should be  
held elsewhere. One natural place seemed to be the numfocus  
organization that was recently formed. They are willing to own (and  
pay the small annual fee) for the domain name. This seems like a  
sensible solution to have the domain held by such a organization  
rather than by a specific astronomical institution. But they wanted to  
know if there was any objection from the astropy community before  
doing so.

Is there any?

For reference, here is a link to numfocus: http://numfocus.org
