The old domain will be active until his registration for it runs out later this year and I think he's sticking with the full word in the name of the site so it's just the domain that changes.

I am using 0.25 from the squeeze-backports from deb-multimedia.org and
they seem almost OK. So far I have had to change
/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend because I think its using --logpath as though
its --logfile and I wasn't getting any log files, and of course I have
had to configure mythweb to fit in with my urls that I wanted.
I have had a separate problem with my tuners, but I don't think that is
related to the packaging of mythtv, rather changing the tuner. In the
last 30 minutes I just received a new tuner and am currently in the
process of setting it up.
I am not entirely sure what you mean by "safe on a production system".
The rest of the system is my web server/mail server/firewall/ WAN
router/dhcp server, and that has been uneffected by mythtv OTHER THAN
the need to reboot frequently because the hardware in the tuners need to
be reset. The new pinnicle usb stick I have just got to replace the
other tuner is external - so I am hoping if that ever locks up that all
I need to do is unplug it and plug it back in.
