Why is it called PowerDNS?
Because it has more POWER
Where is the official FAQ?
I'm on a Linux SMP system and performance is dysmal, what can I do?
Upgrade to 2.6 and a recent glibc. Debian Woody is too old for it to benefit from kernel 2.6. Expect massive performance improvements.
Where did powerdns.org go? And where can I find its contents?
It was registered by another party after a misunderstanding with our registrar. The contents have moved to http://wiki.powerdns.com
What happened to the CVS repository?
We switched to Subversion, the repository is on svn://svn.powerdns.com/
I opened a ticket with 'cvstrac', where did it go?
I'm a developer, can I help?
Yes - grep the source for XXX or TODO or FIXME, you have your work cut out for you :-) Also, look at http://wiki.powerdns.com/projects/trac/wiki/TodoList
My powerdns is not answering with a verbose ADDITIONAL SECTION that includes A records for the namservers of the domain queried.
Powerdns by default does not 'trust' other zones in its own database so you may want to add out-of-zone-additional-processing=yes to your configuration to tell him to do so. If the domain your nameservers are in is known to your powerdns' backend it will now include them into the additional section.
