I'm using mdnsd from but I got no response from the guy who
runs that when I mailed him about passing bugfixes upstream. I want to
replace all the mdnsd code in gmdns because its got some really serious
bugs (it can trivially and frequently get into infinite loops). I
haven't really looked at the stuff - it looked to me to
be focussed on the IP allocation stuff thats owned by the ietf zeroconf
committee but doesn't have much technical connection to mdns and SRV.
