[Pdns-users] Help requested proofreading draft RFC

Hi everybody,

I've embarked on writing a draft RFC on the evils of DNS spoofing and how
a smart nameserver protects itself against it.

Before submitting it to the IETF, I'd appreciate it if my beloved PowerDNS
users would proof read it:



There are three things that matter:

	1. Is each and every paragraph clear and understandable

	2. Are grammar, spelling and semantics correct. I strive to spell UK

	3. Are the calculations correct. Honourable mention for the first
	   candidate to work out a generic formula for the calculations
	   presented in chapter 5. Inputs are: TTL, desired chance of
	   success, number of seconds allowed for the attempt, number of
	   authoritative nameservers, number of source ports used. Output is
	   the sustained amount of bandwidth needed.

Item 2 probably requires a good grasp of the English language. Item 1
however is aimed at everybody - my goal is to make the RFC as easy to
understand as possible, which means not using overly complicated sentences

Item 3 should be nice for all those students wasting time here instead of
studying :-) And there is probably no easier way to get thanked in an RFC

Let me know.
