Unfortunately, D.J. Bernstein has the otherwise fine idea that his programs
should be alike on all platforms. However, that means he is forcing /his/
file-structure down our throats, and if we want to move the files around, we
can't distribute it. His file-placement seriously violates the FHS, so this
is definitely a no-no. However, I like the way qmail-src was done - it gets
the job done nicely, and legally, so something like this might be good.
However, that will still keep it in non-free :(
I have sent an email to DJB about 2 or 3 weeks ago, explaining some of the
problems his rules impose, but so far haven't gotten a reply - he probably
gets a million of those, anyway :(
But I totally agree. Tinydns is /way/ better IMHO, and I use it exclusively
on all machines I set up! (Or rather, tinydns + dnscache + axfrdns)
