I've been looking at pkgsrc and the wealth of choices is
part of my quandary. The case for avoid BIND 4 is clear
to me. The decision to transition from 8 to 9 is still
a judgment call and I don't the needed experience as yet.
1. Why did you choose to use BIND 9 now rather than wait
for NetBSD to adopt it in the distribution?
2. Do you know why BIND 9 isn't part of the distribution?
3. Does the distribution's chosen version state an opinion
on the technical merits versus the latest BIND version?
