Description Robert Scheck 2009-02-22 07:47:37 EST
Description of problem:
According to IANA (http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/ia.html), the current
authoritative whois server is "whois.ai", /etc/jwhois.conf contains something 
else which looks like a web-whois, please change. Real whois server is always
better than something via http.

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

How reproducible:
Actual results:
# whois nic.ai
[Querying http://whois.offshore.ai/cgi-bin/whois.pl]

Expected results:
Replace: "\\.ai$" = "whois.offshore.ai";
by     : "\\.ai$" = "whois.ai";

AND REMOVE the following block:

--- snipp ---
        "whois\\.offshore\\.ai" {
                http = "true";
                http-method = "POST";
                http-action = "/cgi-bin/whois.pl";
                form-element = "domain-name";
--- snapp ---

Additional info:
Please try to get this fix upstream - upstream is unluckily always very very
unresponsive to me.
