We (ISC) are working on a performance test tool as part
of the work on the next generation of DHCP code.

Both sets of work are being done within the BIND10 framework.
BIND10 is the next generation of BIND.  More information about
all of these projects can be found at
The DHCP work is being done under the code name Kea.

We are trying to make BIND10 more open and invite feedback
on the plans and designs, as well as support of the projects.
Support includes monetary donations but could also be
contributing engineering time or code if that works better
for the person or company providing the donation.
