That sounds like a good way to at least get the process started.

However didn't you mention that your build framework was based on the
next release's first candidate?  I haven't been paying close attention
to this upcoming BIND-9 release cycle, but given past history I'm not
sure it makes sense to start out with a release candidate.  I guess it
won't hurt to put rc1 on the trunk, but is there any real advantage to
prototyping with it over the current release (9.2.1)?
