Subject: Re: [ietf-provreg] Anyone working on 4310-bis?
Hi all, I don't want to broaden the discussion even more, but I'd like to have your comments on another question in the context of 4310-bis. If a registrar issues a domain:update request which changes the DS data, then this is usually a part of the KSK rollover process. The rollover process depends on various timeouts, which rely on the TTLs of the DS records in the parent zone and the time of update of the DS records. Both values -- the TTL of the DS records and the update time of the name servers -- are subject to the registry and are unavailable from the EPP point of view. Of course, one can simply poll the name servers of the parent zones and check whether the performed changes have become visible, or, even simpler, blindly rely that it has happened after an ample amount of time. On the other hand, if requested by the registrar, the EPP server *could* send a notification via the poll mechanism to the registrar, that the name servers of the registry now reflect the changes of a specific update that had been processed successfully earlier. TTLs could be reported at the same time. This could not only make sense in the context of DNSSEC, but also for name server changes as well, and could also include create and delete requests, if need be. Now, would you consider such a feature as useful, as a complete nonsense, maybe as something in-between? Would such a feature be worth the effort? If so, should it be included in 4310-bis?
