-; temporarily housed at ISI (IANA)

. 3600000 NS M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.
-M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. 3600000 A 220.127.116.11

... comes from, although 198.32/16 has quite some history that Bill Manning might
enlighten us about. I don't have a copy of root 1997051700, though.

Thanks, I got "M" and "22.214.171.124" ;-)

The serial numbers are from root zone SOA RRs.
M appeared first with root zone 1997031300
. 518400 NS M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.
M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. 518400 A 126.96.36.199
and was then relocated with root zone serial 1997082200
-M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. 518400 A 188.8.131.52
+M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. 518400 A 184.108.40.206
Just for the record, K came in 1997012200 on 220.127.116.11 (twin of J, same
birth date and on 18.104.22.168 until 2002110401) and was later (1997051900?)
relocated to Europe on 22.214.171.124. Maybe we'd add that detail to the I-D's
