-===== Progress on redelegation ​of nameservers ===== +As of 2016-May-24, the BUGS nameservers are name1.octopus.com.au, name2.octopus.com.au ​and ns1.riverwillow.net.
- +
-Sent a query to <​dawes@xfree86.org>​ on 30/5 to request redelegation of nameservers. +
- +
-Sent mail to the FreeBSD.org DNS admins on 30 May 2007 to ask if David is still the best person to contact for au.freebsd.org DNS administration. +
- +
-FreeBSD.org DNS admins replied on 2 June with these names: +

-  ; Australia +
-  ; David Dawes <​dawes@Physics.usyd.edu.au>​ +

-Noticed that dawes must still be alive since he made an xfree86 commit on 21 May.  Send another ping mail to dawes on 2 June.  Also Sent a request to <​jason@planetmirror.com>​ on 2 June to ask if he could assist. +
- +
-Mail was not sent to Edwin since he sits on IRC with us sometimes, and I figured he would have told us by now if he could do anything. ​ As it turns out he sent them some up to date information once, so they took his name down on their list. +
- +
-Jason replied on 2 June, indicating that he would see what he could find out about the situation. +
- +
-Jason replied again on 6 June.  He was not able to contact dawes and is looking for an alternative contact at xfree86.org with access to DNS. +
- +
-Pinged Jason on 10 June to ask if anyone from xfree86.org responded. +
- +
-Jason replied on 13 June, the changes have been performed (by dawes) and the nameservers are now set to: +
- +
