Dear PowerDNS people,

Your attention is needed if you've ever filed a bug on the public

The PowerDNS Bugtracker, which can be found on wiki.powerdns.com, has been
cleaned up in two important ways recently.

Firstly, a number of interesting bugs have been fixed in the development
versions of the PowerDNS Recursor and PowerDNS Authoritative Server.

Secondly, a larger number of issues have been closed as either 'invalid',
'worksforme' or 'wontfix' or 'duplicate'.

Because almost all bugs were filed anonymously, you may not have received
automated feedback about your issue. So if you remember filing a bug, please
check the status below to see if your input may be needed. This might be the
case if you want to verify if your bug has really been fixed, or if you
disagree with a 'wontfix' or 'worksforme'.

To get more status, go to http://wiki.powerdns.com/trac/ticket/223 (replace
223 by your issue number). 

Please either update your issue on the tracker if you are unhappy, or reply
to the list if you think your bug is still open, or was incorrectly closed.

This is a snapshot of the Recursor with the fixes below:
