Projects Moved: erl-dns and dnstest

Two projects which I’ve been spending considerable time on lately, erl-dns and dnstest, have now been moved under the aetrion organization on Github.


The erl-dns project is an authoritative DNS server written in Erlang. Warning: don’t try this at home.


The dnstest project is a collection of regression tests from the PowerDNS 3 regression test suite which I’ve switched over to run in an Erlang test harness. I use these tests to test the correctness of the responses from erl-dns.

I’ll be writing more about both of these projects in the future, especially as we move erl-dns into production at DNSimple.

Update your forks if necessary. Thanks!
