I should explain this to people not familiar with pdns with the geo
backend (as I was unfamiliar about 12 hours ago
right now I've got powerdns to literally pull from our normal bind configs
(with a few modifications). pdns uses this for most of it's data. But
the geo ip lookups would happen prior to the bind lookups and the way it's
setup now would return a cname. So, depending on where you are located
and how we set things up. 'fedoraproject.org' would point to
us.fedoraproject.org or de.fedoraproject.org or maybe even na or
AFAIK, that cname can't be signed with the way pdns currently works.
*however* I think what the cname points to could be signed. I'm not sure
if this completely bypasses what dnssec would get us or not but I suspect
it's the a record signings that are the most important.
