Hi Frank & questions@,
There were discussions. Nslookup was treated as a corollary of
removing bind from src/ to ports/. To find discussions search archives
with word bind in subject headers, (better than keyword nslookup or named).
I recall archives to search as current@ or stable@ freebsd.org.
The rationale for bind removal from src/ I thought ill advised; it won't
suprise me if FreeBSD gets roasted for no longer being net server ready.
Complaints or calls for review should go to <arch at freebsd.org>.
