I am maintaining this for the FSF Europe anyway, so the easiest way is
to write me ;-).  Usually we like to have a snail address like

  warpzone e.V.
  Am Hawerkamp 31
  48155 Münster

and a contact mail for our files.

Well, you asked, it is not used, and the list is anyway short.  Thus I
have now registered *0x2342 for warpzone e.v.*

> Or should I use the unmanaged S/N range (FF00..FFFE)?

If now hackerspaces start to ask too often ID, I may eventually suggest
to either use that range or share a new range range between hackerspaces
and use an hackerspaces internal registry.  I do not want that
gnupg/g10/card-util.c turns into a hackerspace registry.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
