F.ROOT-SERVERS.NET has serial number 1997021900
email@example.com is only for updating your data on the master
root servers. The master root has performed the updates, but
F.ROOT-SERVERS.NET hasn't loaded new "COM." data since Wednesday
of last week. (Sorry, Paul).

There currently isn't a designated interface for contacting the root
nameserver operators in case of external problems. Fortunately, it hasn't
been a major problem yet. The default reflex seems to be to send mail
to NANOG, which has worked so far.
It would be nice to have a designated mailing list / web page...
<URL:http://www.root-servers.net/> and <email@example.com>.
There could even be <firstname.lastname@example.org> through
<email@example.com> to reach admins of specific servers.
While I'm on that topic, it would be nice to have a mailing list for
technical issues relating to root nameservers, given that this really
isn't a NANOG topic. If there isn't one yet, I'd be more than happy
to set one up somewhere. (Anyone who suggests edns-operators will be
promptly laughed at.)
