DNS toolkit for Python

dnspython is a DNS toolkit for Python. It supports almost all record types. It can be used for queries, zone transfers, and dynamic updates. It supports TSIG authenticated messages and EDNS0.

dnspython provides both high and low level access to DNS. The high level classes perform queries for data of a given name, type, and class, and return an answer set. The low level classes allow direct manipulation of DNS zones, messages, names, and records.

This package is an empty dummy package that always depends on the package built for Debian's default Python version.

It would be nice to have a tokenizer that used regular expressions
because it would be faster.

synthesized CNAMEs)

Add TKEY support.

TSIG works, but needs cleaning up -- probably better encapsulation of
TSIG state to make things much simpler and easier to use.
