The latest bind8, bind-8.2.2-p5, has been pulled up to the netbsd-1-4
_branch_. You can help with testing the upcoming 1.4.2 _release_ by
updating your sources to the "-rnetbsd-1-4" tag via cvsup or anoncvs.
See the web page for mirrors and methods.

Otherwise, expect to see a 1.4.1->1.4.2 patch under the 1.4.2
directory, whenever 1.4.2 is released.
