[dns-operations] B-Root to be renumbered in October

yes, the checkhints log can really be annoying, but it's the only side effect of a Root renumbering, at least for bind.

The other side effect, not really related to root-operation, is the time that software packagers take to update the hints file, so you might install a fresh linux box and still retain an old hints file for 3-6 months after the actual change, so double check it anytime you install a recursive resolver pointing to root (if you daisy chain recursive resolver, only the internet facing needs to be updated).

Not having too much experience running recursive resolvers, I found the
article at https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-01309 and it seems that, apart
from perhaps distributing a new root hints file to get rid of checkhints
warnings, this should not be an operational problem.

Is there anything I'm missing?
