Synopsis: improvements to net/named9 (libbind, automatic rndc config, etc., etc.)
State-Changed-When: Tue, 15 Mar 2005 15:48:52 +0000
Most of the changes provided this PR were not integrated:
1.) It is absolutely unnecessary to enforce the creation of two extra
accounts for BIND 9. If somebody wants to use such an administration
approach on her or his machines she or he can create the accounts
2.) There are no benefits in renaming the package to "bind9". The version
number makes it very clear and obvious which release of BIND is
3.) Nothing in "pkgsrc" needs the old BIND 8 library which would be
provided by this changes. We don't even know if it is safe as
the originator of this PR admitted.
4.) We already have a startup script for lwsred(8).
5.) The change to "rndc" is probably a good idea but a "-g" option would
be better. However such a change should be proposed to the ISC and
be decided about by them. I prefer to limit changes of behaviour
between BIND 9 from "pkgsrc" and other distributions.
I've therefore only committed the approved description.
