Description Robert Scheck 2009-02-21 22:44:14 EST
Description of problem:
Please add a whois server for .jobs, currently /etc/jwhois.conf doesn't mention 
any for this TLD. According to http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/jobs.html
from IANA there is one, "jobswhois.verisign-grs.com", so let's use it.

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, whois query fails.

Actual results:
# whois nic.jobs
[Querying whois.internic.net]

Expected results:
Add the following line in /etc/jwhois.conf after "\\.je$" to get it working: 

  "\\.jobs$" = "jobswhois.verisign-grs.com";

Afterwards a whois for .jobs looks much better (note that redirects at .jobs
are allowed for whois, so everything fine here):

# whois nic.jobs
[Querying jobswhois.verisign-grs.com]
[Redirected to whois.encirca.com]
[Querying whois.encirca.com]

Additional info:
Please try to get this fix upstream - upstream is unluckily always very very
unresponsive to me.
Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2009-02-22 11:22:25 EST
Correction, *.verisign-grs.com is a bit strange, use the following block in
order to get low-level redirects working correct:

--- snipp ---
        "\\.jobs$" {
                whois-server = "jobswhois.verisign-grs.com";
                query-format = "domain $*";
--- snapp ---
