And the new named.root has arrived:

I seem to think it has become fairly widespread practice for people to refresh their named.root files (or whatever they decide to call it) using something like this:

$ dig . NS >named.root

This worked before today. From today, it still works (in the sense that it will still result in a named.root file which is sufficiently complete in most situations for a nameserver to be able to send a priming query) but it won't contain a complete set of glue.

So, if you're in the habit of doing

dig . NS >named.root

you would ideally change that habit to something like

curl -O

instead. (Incidentally, for me, is giving "530 Login incorrect" after PASS when logging in using "ftp" or "anonymous").
