What mailing list is correct to discuss this?
Okay to update src/dist/bind for netbsd-3-1 from BIND 9.3.2 to 9.3.5?
Or would that only be for netbsd-3?
If I were you I'd update netbsd-3 first and get that settled. In terms
of getting the changes into netbsd-3-0 and netbsd-3-1 these are
'critical/security branches' so you would have to take this up with
releng and see what they say.
Also why stay with 9.3.x ? If your going to bother with an upgrade go
What is the policy for doing this?
Come up with a patch, test it and submit it.
Anyone responsible or interested in doing this?
And what is the procedure for doing this?
- remove $ from $Id ?
- add $NetBSD in comments ?
Can only "releng" commit this?
Only releng can commit to the netbsd-3,3-0 and 3-1 branches.
The cvs log mentions an "upgrade script". What/where is that?
Try http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/src/dist/bind/bind2netbsd ?
And what is src/dist/bind/EXCLUDED?
I don't see that here
Looking closer I see updates were done for
src/dist/bind/bin/named/query.c (different that change in later 9.3.5)
These could be security updates - check the CVS logs
src/dist/bind/bin/tests/names/dns_label_countbits_data (not in 9.3.5)
src/dist/bind/bin/tests/names/dns_label_getbit_data (also unknown)
src/dist/bind/bin/tests/nxtify.c (also unknown)
and others in "tests"
but weren't mentioned in CHANGES.
The entire diff from official 9.3.2 to our 9.3.2 is 105125 lines so I
think there are other changes too but I didn't see them all.
If I were you I'd diff the 9.3.2 and 9.3.5 releases from ISC, clean out
all the RCS cruff, apply it to src/dist/bind and see what happens.
From 9.3.2->9.3.5 I see 747 files changed, 50872 insertions(+), 38216
With any luck you'll only have a few conflicts :)
