Description James Cloos 2003-07-28 14:21:16 UTC
there are several packages available that provide tools and/or libs for
converting to and from rfc349[012] IDNs.

The following are all one of GPL, LGPL or BSD(ish?): (which requires to compile)

(the next versions of icu will also have idn support)

gentoo should have at least one of those in portage; probably all three.

libidn (and gengetopt) are basic econf && emake && einstall packages.

idnkit as well (but check out configure --help)

IDNSDK is a java package....

there is also a python package in libidn's contrib dir.

libidn is now in portage

I am not sure this belongs to this "bug#. However it would be very nice if the BIND ebuild would enable the IDN support. Check bug

In the portage tree already.
