Approved duplicates are already being ran. The primary WHOIS-
server is not the only one available. Then again, if memory
serves, the actual list of mirrors does reside on the very
same host. :-)
OTOH, I cannot help noticing even the mirror-servers *are*
currently turning down 6BONE queries.
whois.ra.net: "Source 6BONE (6bone) not found."
whois.nic.fr: Some person-objects seem to be there,
although fresh pTLA's et al do not turn up? Obsoleted
Personally, I would just contact the people behind the WHOIS-
server(s) directly -- it's not impossible that the fault has
gone unnoticed. David is probably the key-person here.
Until he reacts, you can, however, just fetch the source for
a capable WHOIS-daemon (RIPE+6BONE) and grab the DB dated Feb
25th (last succesful transfer) from:
...and run it for yourself. Works wonders.
All in all, I would more imagine the number one objective is
simply ensuring data-availability and the stability of the
WHOIS-primary-- not necessarily immediately aiming for running
db-synch with true parallelity et al.
As for accessing the DB per modification, instead of utilizing
batch-updates - such software more has its flaws in design
rather than in implementation.
Good guests do not starvate remote-resources with unnecessary
Good guests commit per batch wherever applicable. :-)
