[Lennart Poettering <firstname.lastname@example.org>] nss-mdns 0.9
I'm forwarding a message from the upstream author of nss-mdns; he
recommends pushing the new upstream release of this library to fix
Debian bug #404266.
This release also introduces a change to not honor the search domains
I'm attaching the diff of the upstream tarballs as well as the diffstat
for you to review.
(I'm the last NMUer of nss-mdns and propose myself to prepare a NMU for
this upstream release as well; Cc:ing the maintainer.)

Just a quick update on nss-mdns/Avahi:
I hope you noticed this announcement:
Updating nss-mdns to 0.9 in Debian will fix #404266, which is quite
problematic. I'd really like to see this new release part of Debian in
time for etch.
Please also note that I wrote up this text in the Avahi wiki:
It describes the problems with ".local" as unicast domain when using
Avahi. When updating nss-mnds/Avahi the next time, please refer to
this text from both README.Debian!
That wiki page also contains a suggestion for the DHCP/resolvconf hook
#392813 and #404534 should probably be merged. And closed when
avahi-domain eventually ships with that hook script.
Anyone knows why #392583 is fixed but still shown under "open" bugs? Confusing!
Thank you for your work on the Avahi/nss-mdns packages!
