Yep, so you're responsible for that crappy ui?
Dotster's wins for ease of use so far...

So, I'm actually curious if they have implemented a feature which was
not high priority when I worked there, and that is the ability to
configure their nameservers as slaves.

Don't think so, it's just that I can "host dns" there for stuff that isn't hosted on their servers.

I'd hope their nameservers are also pretty robust?

Tom - do you know if Rackspace's nameservers are capable of serving up
a slave copy of a zone which is managed at ZoneEdit.com?

When I wrote that email, I was actually proposing hosting the masters there. I don't mind being "DNS boy" for zope.org and I'd hope rackspace's nameservers would scale to the challenge...

We'd like to
de-centralize the zope.org zone so that no one individual or
organization such as Zope Corp are responsible for / in control of it.

If I ever did stop doing Zope stuff (hahahaha) then I'd happilly hand the records on to someone else.

If I dropped dead (or got taken out by that hitman Jens keeps on promising), the DNS could similarly be moved elsewhere...

I presume one of our volunteers is a Rackspace customer, and is thus
offering to host our domain as part of their account.

That'd be me ;-)
