Default Bug#517790: ITP: mydns -- DNS server using MySQL or PostgreSQL for data storage

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Sylvain Rochet <gradator@gradator.net>


* Package name : mydns
Version : 1.2.8.26
Upstream Author : Howard Wilkinsin <howard@cohtech.com>
* URL : http://mydns.pl/
* License : GPLv2
Programming Lang: C
Description : DNS server using MySQL or PostgreSQL for data storage

Free DNS server for UNIX implemented from scratch and designed to
utilise the MySQL or PostgreSQL database for data storage.
..
Its primary objectives are stability, security, interoperability, and
speed, though not necessarily in that order.
..
MyDNS does not include recursive name service, nor a resolver library.
..
It is primarily designed for organisations with many zones and/or
resource records who desire the ability to perform real-time dynamic
updates on their DNS data via MySQL or PostgreSQL.

-- System Information:
Debian Release: squeeze/sid
APT prefers oldstable
APT policy: (500, 'oldstable'), (500, 'unstable'), (500, 'testing'), (500, 'stable'), (1, 'experimental')
Architecture: i386 (i686)

Probably nothing, else that I am using it and packaging it for my own
and thought that it would be a good idea to contribute to Debian, is
redundancy a problem ?

AFAIUI it is a dependency of ispconfig3 (which is not packaged yet).

Even if you're a perfectly responsible maintainer, a new package still
requires some work by ftpmaster, the release team, possibly the security team,
and so on. It also increases the number of options a user has to choose
between. If the package is redundant, this is a waste of their time.


It is a network daemon, so you should also considering security:
different implementations *could* help security,
so redundancy not always is wast of time.

Having different programs to perform a task will decrease the portion of the
user-base that runs a given program and if a bug is found it will give some
degree of herd immunity. But the down-side is that more programs means more
potential security flaws and spreading the time of people who want to fix
security problems (including the security team) across more targets.

The range of software that is available also adds to the work that I have to
do in writing SE Linux policy. I am not complaining, merely noting a fact
about the development work.
