GPG public keyAll tarball releases are signed with MaraDNS’s GPG public key (last updated 2012).
MaraDNS includes the scripting language Lunacy, a Lua 5.1 fork, which is used by the coLunacyDNS service, the document building scripts, and in some of the automated tests. Lunacy can use editline to have up arrow history, making it more pleasant to use on the command line. A local download of a recent source tarball is here at editline-1.17.1.tar.gz.
There is also just Deadwood 3.4.09, an older branch of Deadwood where, as with MaraDNS 3.4, the only changes are security and other important updates. Note that all Deadwood 3.4.09 files are included with MaraDNS 3.4.09.
