Description Ryan Steinmetz 2011-05-31 00:20:09 UTC
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:


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!

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.
