Hello all,

I've been working on a project called DLZ for a few months that I wanted to
let everyone know about.  The DLZ project aims to add capabilities to Bind 9
that will allow Bind backend databases to support adding and removing zones
without interrupting normal server operation.

I.E. You can store all zone and record information in a database instead of
Bind's standard zone files.  Also, you can make any changes you want to that
data while Bind is running - without interrupting BIND (no reload, reconfig,
restart needed!).  Changes to the data are immediately reflected in DNS
queries.  Ideally, this would make administration of DNS data simpler, by
allowing the use of advanced database systems like PostgreSQL, etc.

Anyone interested in the project please check out
http://sourceforge.net/projects/bind-dlz and join the mailing list.

I am very interested in having people test DLZ out on various platforms and
provide feedback.

Hope to hear from you on the DLZ mailing list.

Thanks for your time,
Rob
