Anyone willing to sponsor an Unbound module?

Post by biolizard89 » Thu Apr 09, 2015 9:23 am

Hello,

So I've been playing around with an Unbound module for NMControl, and I have it working well enough to send in a pull request. The problem is, I've spent about $200 of time on it, and I'm basically broke. I know no one wants to give me $200, so I'll release it for $50. (And I will happily continue to maintain it after release.)

The feature set is:

Unbound DNS server returns A and AAAA records for .bit domains.
Can be used with NetworkManager/dnsmasq on Linux so that your non-.bit lookups aren't affected.
Successfully tested with Firefox loading bluishcoder.bit.
Based on the dns-dev branch of NMControl.

Features not present yet include:

Other records than A and AAAA (some of these have poorly defined specs for .bit, others are affected by an Unbound bug that is fixed upstream but not yet fixed in Fedora's repos).
NXDOMAIN (right now it can't tell the difference between a nonexistent domain and a domain that doesn't have a record of the requested type).
Dropping root privileges (I need to figure out the paths, but it should be possible).
Windows and OS X support (although it appears possible to port it).

If anyone is interested in sponsoring, reply below. If multiple people wish to split the cost, I can either use Lighthouse or ask Phelix to be an intermediary (or you can just trust me to issue refunds if not everyone pays).

Cheers.

Received, thank you for the support. Waiting on the transaction to confirm; I will file a pull request shortly.
