NANOG Summary

Here is a summary of recent events on NANOG
regarding Root Name Server problems.

1. People are complaining about Root Name Server
  corruption, etc.

2. Some people hypothesize that people unhappy
  with the IAHC outcome are causing trouble.

3. During that discussion, someone noted they could
  not get to the server run by Paul Vixie.

4. I asked if Paul "filters" traffic to that server. No answer.

5. A few people tried to twist that and to take a simple
  question regarding filtering and make more
  out of it. Paul finally sort of admitted that
  he filters a small percentage.

6. I summarized the situation and noted that the IANA
  and Network Solutions were making changes
  to the Root Name Server arrangements and
  suggested, that could be the cause of the
  problems noted in #1 above.

7. George Herbert claimed these changes have
  corrupted the H root server and that these
  changes should cease and desist.

8. I pointed out that Jon Postel (the IANA) is making
  those changes.... there is silence at NANOG...I guess all of the
Root Name Server problems have either disappeared
or have been solved....
