Description Bevis King 2008-11-29 11:07:29 EST
Description of problem:
[This is almost certainly one for upstream - hope you can submit it to the right people].
The bind sample configuration file in /usr/share/doc/bind which is referred to in the template file provided with the bind RPM appears to be very out of date omitting for instance any mention of:

- the "listen-on port" directive and how it's formatted
- the "allow-query" directive

both of which I believe have become mandatory and both of which need to be changed by anyone setting up anything more than a simple caching nameserver (something the example file appears to show, except it doesn't because of these new directives which enhance security.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time!

Steps to Reproduce:
1.   Compare the sample file with the pre-installed template file.
Actual results:

Expected results:
