Certian HINFO DNS requests can crash PowerDNS threads or (reportedly) the whole server. This is more severe when running with 'distributor-threads=1'.
The fixed version will be released tomorrow, let's get it into portage asap.
pdns-188.8.131.52 is in the tree.
I thought we should have waited with submitting to portage until 2008-11-17?
Arches, please test and mark stable.
Target keywords: x86, amd64

No, if it is SEMI-PUBLIC, we usually handle stabling in the tree.

You can't cc arches to a restricted bug as arch developers cannot access it (only the alias login can). CC'ing arch liaisons:
amd64 : keytoaster, tester
x86 : maekke, armin76
amd64/x86 stable, all arches done.

Let's GLSA this with bug 234032. YES.
