Didn't you get the response from name.com that I forwarded to you

Anyway, the transfer finally succeeded! I could access the control panel
on Gandi's website.

There were some inconsistencies between the glue NS records and the DS
records that were already installed in the .net TLD and what the web
interface was showing, but in the end I was able to fix them.

Everything seems to work fine now, shall we go ahead and transfer
sugarlabs.org? You already have the auth key.
