HEADS UP! BIND 9.2.3 coming soon!

I wanted to give everyone fair warning that BIND 9.2.3 will be replacing 
the ancient BIND8 in HEAD/6-CURRENT in the next few days, likely this 
weekend.  If you are running production BIND servers then you might want
to hop over to http://www.isc.org/index.pl?/sw/bind/FAQ.php and read up
to make sure you won't have any surprises.  BIND9 will then be merged to
RELENG_5 once it has settled in HEAD and will be the default for the 5.3
release.  There are no plans to merge it into RELENG_4 or any other 
branch at this time.  I know that it is quite late in the release cycle
to be doing this, but it is probably the highest requested feature for
5.3 at this point and we need to switch to the 9.x codebase for RELENG_5
since the 8.x codebase is quite old and is nearing the end of its life.
Many thanks and best of luck to Dag-Erling Smørgrav and Tom Rhodes for
leading this effort.
