The IESG contact persons are Warren Kumari and Ignas Bagdonas. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-dnsop-terminology-bis/
Technical Summary The domain name system (DNS) is defined in literally dozens of different RFCs. The terminology used by implementers and developers of DNS protocols, and by operators of DNS systems, has sometimes changed in the decades since the DNS was first defined. This document gives current definitions for many of the terms used in the DNS in a single document. This document will be the successor to RFC 7719, and thus will obsolete RFC 7719. It will also update RFC 2308. Working Group Summary This document has proceeded through the WG remarkably smoothly. The editors have done an enormous amount of work, as have the reviewers. The editors were open with the WG in taking input and mostly incorporating it. A terminology document for a 30yo protocol covered by dozens of existing documents and used by millions of hosts and billions of users every day is a particularly thankless task and it's been done very well. It was written expressly to obsolete 7719, which was Informational and tackled only those definitions that were unambiguous; this document extends them in an attempt to resolve some such ambiguities to recommend "best practice". Document Quality The document attempts to describe both the standard and practice for a protocol that's been in use for 30 years and dozens of implementations. Attention in the WG came from both operators and implementers. Personnel Suzanne Woolf is the Document Shepherd. Warren Kumari is RAD!
