As I worked on #964 I found various glitches in the
implementation. I suspect we'll soon need fundamentally rewrite of
it (even if done incrementally) due to its current overall quality of
the code, but here are some specific points as a placeholder:

  • port number 53 is hardcoded
  • creating separate sockets for separate notify transaction seems to be a waste
  • a related note: it's not clear whether the limit of concurrent of notifies (30) is reasonable. if not, and if we allow a larger number notifies at the same time, the second point will be severer.
  • it's so heavily dependent on details of sqlite3 specific code (although not really the problem of notify_out itself)
  • it cannot send notifies to out-of-zone NSes.

  • Milestone changed from Year 3 Task Backlog to Next-Sprint-Proposed

I'd also like to see it not notify any address we are listening on ourselves

I guess the fact that this ticket was given an estimation of 8
suggests that we should divide the task.
