New Port: dns/p5-Net-DNS-Check: Net::DNS::Check is a collection of OOP Perl modules allowing easy implementation of applications for domain name checking. The Net::DNS::Check was built to be as easy as possible to use and highly configurable and flexible: it allow easy implementation of your custom test and deeper configuration of what you want to check and how.

Hi Ryan, thanks for submitting this new port. I would be pleased to commit it but before that I wanted to make sure that adding this port is relevant, particularly with regards to the existing dns/dnscheckengine port. As I do not use these kinds of dns check tools I wanted to ask you: have you tried dns/dnscheckengine before and if yes what does your port bring that dns/dnscheckengine does not? I also noted that the dns/dnscheckengine is still maintained as shown here: https://github.com/dotse/dnscheck whereas developments on p5-Net-DNS-Check seem to have stopped in 2005. Don't get me wrong, I am not making any judgement with regards to the quality of the underlying software but the idea is to avoid redundancy in the ports tree, so I wanted to have your confirmation that this new port could not be replaced by dns/dnscheckengine. Thanks for your feedback Ryan! Frederic

Frederic, I haven't used dns/dnscheckengine yet, but it does look like it requires additional dependencies and installs binaries that p5-Net-DNS-Check does not need. I agree, it does appear that dnscheckengine has much more recent activity on it, code-wise. -r
