The root nameservers will be replaced August 1st

I have long advocated moving the root nameservers to XPs. It makes
considerable traffic sense. But I have also always advocated that these
servers be owned and operated by the XP, not by some third party. To do
otherwise would be an administrative nightmare....

You mean I have to go out and actually read those 100 messages a day
coming from newdom.... :frowning:
    Key fingerprint = 17 40 5E 67 15 6F 31 26 DD 0D B9 9B 6A 15 2C 32
    Key fingerprint = 2E 07 23 03 C5 62 70 D3 59 B1 4F 5E 1D C2 C1 A2

No. You can pick up the substance of the matter by reading through some of
the links available at And if you want to
browse through a few of the list messages there is a list archive linked
off that page too.

95% of it is politics and the only thing that seemed to me to impact
operations was this plan to put competing nameservers at the XP's.
