Bug#348970: ITP: ldns -- dns client utilities

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "OndÅ?ej Surý" <ondrej@debian.org>

* Package name    : ldns
  Version         : 1.0.1
  Upstream Author : NLnetlabs
* URL             : http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/ldns/
* License         : BSD
  Description     : dns client utilities

 The goal of ldns is to simplify (experimental) DNS programming, it
 should support recent RFCs like the DNSSEC documents, and allow
 developers to easily create software conforming to current RFCs, and
 experimental software for current Internet drafts. A secondary benefit
 of using ldns is speed, because ldns is written in C it should be a lot
 faster than Perl.
 The main first tool to use ldns is Drill, from which part of the library
 was derived. From version 1.0.0 on, drill will be included in the ldns
 release and will not be developed seperately anymore. The library also
 includes some other examples and tools to show how it can be used. 
  * IP4 and IP6 support,
  * TSIG support,
  * DNSSEC support; signing and verification,
  * small size,
  * online documentation as well as manual pages. 

[Note: description verbatim copied from ldns web page, it needs to be
improved and suggestions are welcomed, this set of utilities provides
alternative for BIND9 client utilities including DNSSEC.]
