I (with my group) am running several WordPress Networks and we have already employed more than 15 people on these projects.
But I need more WordPress developers to make them work with us, only problem is that there are not any strong developers in our country - Georgia (yet). We are hiring developers from various countries, but we prefer to have local developers (because of various reasons, you know).
WordPress is just becoming popular here - I mean - more bloggers are using this platform to blog but of course this kind of people isn't enough for us to work with we need strong developers and not bloggers.
So, we have decided to create a huge, WordPress-related portal with full documentation (localized codex.wordpress.org), news from different, popular WordPress-related blogs (like wpcandy, wpmu.org, etc.), we are going to encourage people start learning WordPress, some of them will be employed by us, some of them will work on creating plugins/themes and they will just join global WordPress community.
We are going to hire about 6-10 people for this portal (for translating codex, news, for support, etc.) and I am pretty sure Georgian WordPressers will soon join this awesome community.
Why I am writing this here:
I have read your domain policy and have a question about that. I think this policy is created because some people were creating sites with domain "wordpress" and they made people to trust them (as people thought it was officially related to Automattic, as domain was using their trademark) to download malicious software and etc.
So, I think we are not going to do something like that on wordpress.ge domain, we will also write on homepage that this is UNOFFICIAL wordpress site. But we would also be very pleased if you give us official status (as WordPress representators in Georgia). This would make people think that SOMEBODY in Georgia is really interested with WordPress..
Another way is that we redirect this domain to wordpress.domain.com but this is what we could do without asking you, because it is legal, but we are asking for permission to use this domain itself.
I strongly hope this is possible.
