Technical Summary The DNS DNAME RRTYPE redirects subtrees of the domain name space. This memo updates the original specification found in RFC 2672. It also aligns RFC 3363 and RFC 4294 with the revision. Working Group Summary The DNS Extensions Working Group has spent a considerable amount of time on this document. It is the product of extended review. The chairs believe the WG consensus to be strong. Document Quality The document is partly the result of experience with the original DNAME specification, and highlights a number of issues that have proven troublesome in practice. In the opinion of the WG, the draft clarifies these issues without introducing wire changes to the protocol. Personnel Andrew Sullivan <firstname.lastname@example.org> is the Document Shepherd. Ralph Droms <email@example.com> is the responsible Area Director.
