This document describes the queries that a DNS resolver should emit
to initialize its cache. The result is that the resolver gets both a
current NS RRSet for the root zone and the necessary address
information for reaching the root servers.
Working Group Summary
This document has been active in the working group for several years. It
had strong consensus to adopt and publish. However, due to working
group inertia and authors busy schedules, the document stalled several times.
It was picked back up recently and the document went through an editing
process to streamline the language.
This time through the process there was enough attention paid by the working
group to address any outstanding issues, provide editorial comments, and see
the document through.
