Re: What happened to root-server serial number?

some of the reasons a lot of us pay so little attention to most alternative
root nameserver systems are: they often don't do their homework, and they
often don't pay attention to the details.
diffing text files as a way to check for zone changes would be one way to
commit both errors at the same time.
running a so-called root name server with recursion enabled would be another.
