As you may have guessed I'm struggling to find the time to maintain PowerDNS

Before I manage to build the RPM, you can find PowerDNS 2.9.9 on
http://www.powerdns.org/pdns-2.9.9.tar.gz and

Changelog will also appear on the site soon:

Small bugfixes, LDAP update. Released 21th of June 2003. Apologies for the
long delay, real life keeps interfering.

     * 2.9.8 was prone to crash on adding additional records. Thanks to
       excelent debugging by PowerDNS users worldwide, the bug was found
       quickly and is in fact present in all earlier PowerDNS releases,
       but for some reason doesn't cause crashes there.
     * Notifications now jump in front of the queue of domains that need
       to be checked for changes, giving much greater perceived
       performance. This is needed if you have tens of thousands of slave
       domains and your master server is on a high latency link. Thanks
       to Mark Jeftovic of EasyDNS for suggesting this change and testing
       it on their platform.
     * Dean Mills reported that PowerDNS does confusing logging about
       changing GIDs and UIDs, fixed. Cosmetic only.
     * LDAP: DNS TTLs were random values (Norbert Sendetzky)
     * LDAP: Now works with OpenLDAP 2.1(Norbert Sendetzky)
     * LDAP: error handling for invalid MX records implemented (Norbert
     * LDAP: better exception handling (Norbert Sendetzky)
     * LDAP: code cleanup of lookup() (Norbert Sendetzky)
