libtiff.info is available. maybe others too.

So is/was libtiff.io (or did the .io fad fade?), but a quick search shows those are a lot more expensive than most other domain extensions.

As the domain seems to be otherwise completely unused by the registrant I can't imagine why they have an interest in keeping it.

I suppose there are parties that don't mind developers going for an older, less secure, libtiff version. Hopefully not libtiff.org though.

I've just paid $76.15 to GoDaddy for their "Buy Domain Service" for libtiff.org to hopefully see what the registrant wants for it.

Ouch. Another entry for the list "Reasons not to use GoDaddy"...

Vadim Zeitlin is, amongst other things, also still the main contributor of wxWidgets and I have zero reason to think he has any bad intentions. I can't vouch for what "git cvsimport" outputs as I have no experience with that.

That's a site that I sometimes see in search results. Thank you for that site :-).
