Add whois server for .lc (we're lacking that TLD completely)
Last modified: 2009-02-27 05:11:06 EST
Description of problem:
Please add a whois server for .lc, currently /etc/jwhois.conf doesn't mention
any for this TLD. I'm aware, that http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/lc.html
from IANA doesn't list any, but if you look to that site, the authoritative
DNS servers are from Afilias and in fact, Afilias is the technical contact and
provides the technical equipment for the .lc registry - so let's use a whois
server there which even works as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime, whois query fails.
# whois nic.lc
Add the following line in /etc/jwhois.conf after "\\.lb$" and everything works:
"\\.lc$" = "whois2.afilias-grs.net";
# whois -h whois2.afilias-grs.net nic.lc
Please try to get this fix upstream - upstream is unluckily always very very
unresponsive to me.
