VeriSign Naming and Directory Services will change the serial number format and "minimum" value in the .com and .net zones' SOA records on or shortly after 9 February 2004.
Matt, was it not possible for Verisign to give more than 30 hours notice of these changes? This is an Internet-wide change that will very likely break some systems somewhere. Surely more notice would have been reasonable.But because these zones are widely used and closely watched, we want to let the Internet community know about the changes in advance.
The notice actually given is so short as to be almost worthless. It might have raised Verisign's moral stock around here if more notice had been given, or even some consultation issued. As it is, Verisign seem to have moved in a way that, yet again, is likely to convince the community of Verisign's apparent arrogance and contempt towards the rest of us. Sad.
