Re: Bind 9.16.17 update built for packages?

Indeed "these things they do 'appen!" :) Is it possible/worth adding a
note to UPDATING to not upgrade to 9.16.17?

Something like this:

============
20210621:
AFFECTS: users of bind916 9.16.17

ISC have issued a warning to users to not upgrade to this version of
bind916 due to bug in the lookup tables which is likely to cause
operational errors for most users.

https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/bind9/-/issues/2779

The issue does not exist in 9.16.16 and is fixed in 9.16.18, please wait
for that package to be released before upgrading.

============

Or probably better, roll changes back to remove the faulty package?

Regards,

Simon.
