In a message you posted
the debian-isp mailing list, I saw you mentioned moodns.
I'm one of the moodns developers, and I haven't made any sort of public
announcement, so it was a bit of a shock seeing mention of it. (It was also
weird seeing a link to moodns the maradns page site.)
One thing you mentioned was that maradns' zonefile format is (or at least
was when you'd last looked at it) "dumber [...] than djbdns". moodns is
using the tinydns-data format, at least for now. I'm curious what you find
wrong with it - is it just that it's not what bind uses which makes a
transition somewhat difficult, or is there more to it than that? I ask
because I respect your opinion; I remember your insightful posts to the
If it means more people would use moodns, I'd be willing to teach moodns to
read bind-style zonefiles, although that's not a priority yet. Possibly
better than that would be a new format, but it would need to be a real
improvement; a small incremental step probably wouldn't mean much. Of
course suggestions are welcome.
moodns is progressing, more slowly than I'd like, so it's not worth your
time to download it yet. I hope that statement won't hold for much longer.
 Where'd you go, anyway? Tired of all the malformatted emails and
