I agree with you. All those sub-domains are a bit confusing. But I think
I'm adding to the confusion: I believe the URL stuff has changed so that
everything is always served from a single FQDN. So KForge doesn't have
this sub-domain thing at all anymore.....
The new regime is to set a domain name (called domain_name in the
DEFAULT section), and optionally a path prefix (called uri_prefix in the
www section). Then KForge is served from:
Then the url scheme is quite compact. A project will have its 'admin'
And if it has trac and svn services, they will be here:

I'm not sure how configurable things are. But I think you don't really
need the 'admin' path prefix. KForge doesn't allow you to create
projects with names that collide with the admin urls (e.g. you can't
create a project called 'project').
(Anyway, the concept of admin and project/service "views" isn't
particularly good, and I think now isn't being carried forward in KForge.)
Let's wait for Rufus to reply? I just telephoned him, but his phone was off.
Hopefully we can clean this aspect up more, document things more
clearly, for the next release.
