* The dnscache program is a local DNS cache. It accepts recursive DNS
queries from local clients such as web browsers. It collects responses
from remote DNS servers.
* The tinydns program is a general-purpose DNS server. It makes local
DNS information available to the Internet. It supports load balancing
and client differentiation.
* The walldns program is a reverse DNS wall. It provides matching
reverse and forward records while hiding local host information.
* The rbldns program is an IP-address-listing DNS server. It uses DNS
to publish a list of IP addresses, such as a list of known spam
* The dns library handles outgoing and incoming DNS packets. It can be
used by clients such as web browsers to look up host addresses, host
names, MX records, etc. It supports asynchronous resolution.
* The dnsfilter program is a parallel IP-address-to-host-name converter.
* The dnsip, dnsipq, dnsname, dnstxt, and dnsmx programs are simple
command-line interfaces to DNS.
* The dnsq, dnsqr, and dnstrace programs are DNS debugging tools.

2009-11-18 - Gavin Carr <> 1.05-5
- Add patches by Jonathan de Boyne Pollard to fix various issues with
both tinydns and dnscache.
2003-06-02 - Gavin Carr <> 1.05-4
- Added %pre section to add djbdns users on install, and %postun to
remove them again on erase. Removed automatic creation of
/etc/dnscache and /etc/tinydns directories, since these are created
by the conf scripts.
2003-04-28 - Gavin Carr <> 1.05-1
- Build based on vanilla djbdns-1.05 tarball and Mate Wierdl's 
glibc 2.3.1 errno patch.
