It's a "legitimate" mail from Digium. We're trying to use the
tools that others have built instead of building our own systems, so
this particular company that we've chosen for research collection has
their own hosts outside of the Digium DNS and server structure.
Myself, I'm a big fan of Google Docs but they do have some
shortcomings (like also not being in our DNS or server structure) and
not everyone uses the same tools here at Digium. "There's more than
one way to do it", as goes one of the more famous Asterisk sayings.
Sorry if that message you received seemed unusual or unexpected
because of the URL format. You can opt-out at the bottom of the
emailings in the future if you wish, though some of the data that
we're collecting will be tangentally useful in promoting OSS Asterisk
in various forms. And to proactively answer the next question that
may come up from someone: We've _never_ used the asterisk-* mailing
list for any direct marketing email input lists. In other words:
whatever email address you've used for the asterisk-* lists is
private, and Digium never uses those for marketing purposes.
