[Pdns-users] Book ideas

I have started working on a book focused primarily on authoritative DNS
servers (PowerDNS, MaraDNS, MyDNS) as well as BIND with the SDB back-end
and DLZ BIND. The book shall *not* be a "this server is better than that
one" but rather an insight into the individual programs, their features,
strengths, and perhaps also their weaknesses.

I intend to also focus on LDAP and SQL back-ends (where applicable) and
concentrate mainly on authoritative servers, only slightly touching on
recursive name servers.

I've contacted the maintainers of the programs asking whether they know
of any books which discuss these programs, and some of them have
answered my query. :-)

You could help to turn this project into something useful by giving me
pointers on which topics (for the individual name server software) you
would consider most useful to have included in a book. I'm also open to
any ideas you might have or perhaps even wishes for topics.

Thank you.
