Postmaster already has code to announce its services via DNS-SD (ZeroConf) by using Apple's Bonjour API. This series of patches implements that capability on top of the Avahi library which is free software, available for a wider variety of platforms.
I've separated the change set into smaller pieces for easy review. Also I don't know, if the 4th patch adding subtypes describing Postgresql's capabilities is wanted by the Postgresql community. Being a desktop guy, using Postgresql as embedded database, I'd really like to see all of the patches merged, but I could imagine some opposition against the verbose nature of the subtypes patch. Each of the patches as a short description of its purpose. I couldn't find any ChangeLog files in the repository, and also I didn't invest much time in investigating how the HISTORY file of distribution tarballs is assembled. So if the repository contains file I should have modified for documenting my changes, I apologize for not updating them.  http://www.avahi.org/ -- Mathias Hasselmann <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> www.openismus.com
