Openverse’s staging site has moved

OpenverseOpenverse Openverse is a search engine for openly-licensed media, including photos, audio, and video. Openverse is also the name for the collection of related code repositories that make up the project.’s staging site, where contributors evaluate their recently-merged work and prepare new releases of Openverse, has moved from search-staging.openverse.engineering to staging.openverse.org, following the project’s acquisition of the openverse.org domain name at the end of last year. The new name is simpler to remember and to type.

For the foreseeable future, the old .engineering domain name will redirect to the new one. At this time this change only effects the staging frontend site. Any other domain name changes to Openverse services will be announced at a future date.

If you see any references to the old domain name in our documentation, or elsewhere on the web, please let us know.
