Technical Summary The Domain Name System (DNS) is defined in literally dozens of different RFCs which have been updated over time. This document attempts to give current definitions to many of the terms used in DNS in a single document. Working Group Summary This document had a large amount of working group discussion, editing, reviews, and opinions. This draft was attempting to document what current definitions are defined in existing RFCs. There was suggestions to 'correct' some of the definitions to make what the real world definition is. The decision was made that any changes to definitions would be done in a -bis document within a year. Document Quality This document is of very good quality. Time was spent preparing the definitions, discussing the wording, and getting the editing just right. Observed consensus on this document is interesting. It is possible that given the opportunity a near endless cycle of small edits would be proposed respecting some aspects of the terminology. I think that we have arrived at to point that almost all parties can live with the output as it stands now. Personnel The Document Shepherd is Tim Wicinski and the Area Director is Joel Jaggli.
