Is there an opportunity to also bring in OpenShift Origin, in particular
Broker, which also uses its own BIND with dyndb and/or nsupdate?
Maybe they don't care as much since they use a limited subset of BIND only
for namespace and app subdomains.
Generally, I don't see a reason why not. Do you have any pointer to the right
mailing list or particular person? It would help me a lot because I know next
to nothing about OpenShift.
Knot DNS looks cool, hadn't heard of these guys yet.

as you may know, we don't have any tests for bind-dyndb-ldap/DNS in

The LinuxAlt conference 2013 brought the information that Knot DNS 
developers plan to write a new test suite for their server, but as usual,
resources are limited and nobody really want to spent time on tests :-)
This resulted in the idea of test-sharing between Knot DNS and
bind-dyndb-ldap/FreeIPA. I think that this would be beneficial for both
We can mutually re-use tests from the other project, so overall cost of
test-development will be lower for both sides.
The only technical obstacle is that we need to design/to bend testing
framework from Knot DNS, so it will be able to run the same set of tests
against BIND with bind-dyndb-ldap.
It seems feasible after a quick look. We just need to allocate some time
for initial discussion/framework design/bending and then we can add tests
incrementally, as our schedule allows.
Current 'test suite' is a part of Knot DNS git repo, and I think that it
can stay in this way. The idea is to:
- clone the repo
- set few environment variables (to direct tests to local BIND)
- run the tests
That is it :-)
It would be great if we could spend some time on this now. We need to
discuss it and prepare the testing framework.
We risk that Knot DNS guys will go ahead and design the framework in a way
which will not fit to our needs if we will wait too long.
The bonus part: A wiki page about current functional tests for Knot DNS:
