Deadwood update


September 5 2011

I am slowly but surely going through the bugs people have been reporting on the list:

  • Steve Fatula reported that Deadwood was returning SERVER FAILs on his system. I was and still am unable to reproduce this bug. In an attempt to reproduce this concern, I have created a SQA test that simulates one of the two upstream servers giving out a SERVER FAIL error; this test did not reproduce the condition Steve reported. I am closing this bug as "unreproducible".
  • Domenico Rotondi reported having issues when both root_servers and upstream_servers are set in a dwood3rc file. I have created a SQA test to use both of these settings in the same Deadwood configuration file; the tests appear to be able to reproduce this problem; I will investigate further in a month.
  • Angel reported that some records were lost when transferring a zone. I have not had a chance to look at this yet. Hopefully next month.

The next day I plan to work on MaraDNS/Deadwood is one month from today: October 5, 2011.
