Just a idea, might be worthwhile versioning these "snapshots" with a  
SVN revision number, to help us (the users) and at least you, to know  
what version we running when reporting problems etc.

Second, in regards to your question about packaging a separate  
release for the recursor, why don't you include the recursor in the  
standard PDNS releases you do (same as today) as well as offering a  
separate versioned release for the recursor. For me, I use the PDNS  
on my nameservers, of which 2 are serving recursing clients as well,  
so its just a bit more "troublesome" to download or keep track of two  
releases rather than one.

Cheers for the effort you guys put into PDNS, cause in turn, its  
saved me effort as well.
