Verify gnome.org with Google Search Console
- https://support.google.com/cloud/answer/9110914?hl=en&ref_topic=3473162 we need to submit our Google APIs keys and login pages for verification in order to keep them working for users who use libgdata/Google Drive/CalDAV in Evolution/various other Google APIs.
This needs to be done by February 14th 2019.
Part of that involves verifying that the domain we claim to use (gnome.org) is actually owned by us. That means we need to verify it using Google Search Console.
If we add the following verification code as a TXT record on gnome.org, it’ll verify my Google account (philip.withnall@gmail) as an owner of the domain — that will fix the immediate verification problem, but is not sustainable in the long term from a sysadmin point of view (I’m not a sysadmin and I might disappear under a bus):
So we might want to add multiple accounts, or have a special shared Google account for GNOME sysadmins which is used for this kind of verification and linking.
