[Dnsmasq-discuss] [PATCH]

Hey Simon,

I have a few patches for the v2.87 cycle, here is the first one:

This patch implements all known RR type strings as defined by IANA at

This is especially important because we've seen logs that contain types
where dnsmasq doesn't know the human-friendly name. Most commonly seen
these days is <type=65> ("HTTPS") which is now used widespread by Apple
devices. We've seen reports where this query type can even make up to
20% of the overall traffic. Whether this is useful (or healthy) is
another thing.

I'm involved in the process now and get notified if the IANA RR types
table gets updated and will send new patches if this is the case.
