Name        : dnsmasq
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 2.66
Release     : 6.fc19
URL         : http://www.thekelleys.org.uk/dnsmasq/
Summary     : A lightweight DHCP/caching DNS server
Description :
Dnsmasq is lightweight, easy to configure DNS forwarder and DHCP server.
It is designed to provide DNS and, optionally, DHCP, to a small network.
It can serve the names of local machines which are not in the global
DNS. The DHCP server integrates with the DNS server and allows machines
with DHCP-allocated addresses to appear in the DNS with names configured
either in each host or in a central configuration file. Dnsmasq supports
static and dynamic DHCP leases and BOOTP for network booting of diskless

Update Information:

Include several fixies from upstream repo:
- Tighten hostname checks in legal hostname() function
- Replace inet_addr() with inet_pton() in src/option.c
- Use dnsmasq as default DNS server for RA only if it's doing DNS
- Handle IPv4 interface address labels (aliases) in Linux (#962246)
- Fix failure to start with ENOTSOCK (#962874)
- Send TCP DNS messages in one packet
- Fix crash on SERVFAIL when using --conntrack option
- Fix regression in dhcp_lease_time utility
- Man page typos fixes
- Note that dhcp_lease_time and dhcp_release work only for IPv4
- Fix for --dhcp-match option to work also with BOOTP protocol

Dnsmasq unit file cleanup:
- drop forking Type and PIDfile and rather start dnsmasq with "-k" option
- drop After syslog.target as this is by default

  [ 1 ] Bug #962874 - dnsmasq: failed to set SO_BINDTODEVICE on DHCP socket: Socket operation on non-socket
