We are going to give a talk at the ICANN DNS Symposium right before the next IETF meeting (Montreal, July) that I think will be kind of a retrospective on the evolution of the DNS, the DNS protocols, and BIND itself.
Here are some things that maybe we could talk about:
What are some BIND or DNS features that in hindsight, you wish we had never bothered with? (ok, DNSSEC, but what ELSE?)
What are some features that other DNS developers probably wish we hadn’t put into BIND (yes, I don’t expect them to answer here, but I can find them and ask them)
Great DNS Disasters, where errors or bugs took down or otherwise mucked up significant sections of the DNS?
DNS protocol ‘bugs’: there was the not-so random queue ID, the Kaminsky bug, what other significant protocol level bugs have we had?
