In the security advisory that went out tonight, a BIND 9.5.0a2 was
mentioned. I can't find any information about this release on line
(although I admit I didn't spend a LOT of time looking). So, a few

1. What are the motivations for this branch? (NSEC3?)
2. Will it replace 9.4.x as the "next" supported branch?
3. What's the rough time line for a release version? (More relevant if
the answer to 2 is yes).
4. Where can we get information about the new release, and download
the bits?

If the answer to 2 above is no, I'm a little concerned that we may
have too many irons in the fire here. I try to keep up to date testing
the various new code bases on my platform, but there is only so much
time to test, and so many resources to do (meaningful) testing on. It
would be nice if we could hear what the path going forward looks like
so that we can make plans accordingly.
