DNSEXT chair Olafur Gudmundsson, who has been paid for BIND work, writes:
only you objecting to the document
There have been public objections from Aaron Swartz, Felix von Leitner,
Len Budney, Kenji Rikitake, Dean Anderson, Sam Trenholme (MaraDNS
implementor), and of course me (djbdns implementor)---plus an unknown
number of people whose messages to namedroppers have been silently
discarded by Randy Bush.
Meanwhile, axfr-clarify is being pushed primarily by people with
financial interests in BIND. The Yokohama minutes say ``too bind
specific'' with no hint of any dispute about that, and the Atlanta
minutes don't indicate any further discussion.
What's most damning, of course, is the simple fact that the objections
are being ignored. http://cr.yp.to/djbdns/axfr-clarify.html explains in
detail what's wrong with the BIND company's arguments; the BIND company
responds by repeating the arguments and ignoring the objections.
