           Summary: Inconsistent handling of reverse IP lookup fixed in
                    Net::DNS 0.59
           Product: Fedora Core
           Version: test3
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: normal
         Component: perl-Net-DNS
        AssignedTo: rnorwood at redhat.com
        ReportedBy: rwfranks at acm.org
                CC: fedora-perl-devel-list at redhat.com

Description of problem:
Perl-Net-DNS-0.58 resolver search(), query(), bgsend() and send() methods not
consistent in interpreting IPv4 and IPv6 addresses as a PTR query.

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

Additional info:

Since FC6-test3 went to press, Net::DNS 0.59 has been released.

I realise that final release deadline is uncomfortably close, but think that the
revised module fixes enough inconsistent and outright wrong behaviour to be well
worth getting into FC6 if this is still possible.

The CPAN bug references are:

#20857  Resolver query() treats empty or undef name as default domain.

#20994  Resolver search() erroneously applies search list to IPv6 address.

#21402  Unable to prebuild PTR query from IP using Net::DNS:Packet->new().

The search() query() send() bgsend() and Packet->new() methods are now 100%
consistent in  the form of argument they accept.
The inconsistency was reported in CPAN bug #20836 (later merged with #21402)

I can confirm that revised module has been tested using FC5.
