Description Matthias Geerdsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-07-09 10:52:39 UTC
As a caching DNS server, posadis might be affected by the issue too.
Besides that, it's last version was released in December 2004 it seems. Is it still maintained somehow or is it not even worse keeping it in the tree maybe?

Matsuu, could you comment please?

Comment 4 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-26 16:29:26 UTC
Matsuu, did upstream respond? If they did not, it might be worthwhile to remove this package and issue a maskglsa.
