+# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
+# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description. Line
+# up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and the '|'
+# on the right side marks the last column you can put a character in. You must
+# make exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct. It's also
+# customary to leave one space after the ':' except on otherwise blank lines.

+pdns-recursor: pdns-recursor (high-performance recursive resolver)
+pdns-recursor:
+pdns-recursor: PowerDNS consists of two parts: the Authoritative Server
+pdns-recursor: and the Recursor. Other nameservers fully combine these functions,
+pdns-recursor: PowerDNS offers them separately, but can mix both authoritative and
+pdns-recursor: recursive usage seamlessly. The Authoritative Server will answer
+pdns-recursor: questions about domains it knows about, but will not go out on the net
+pdns-recursor: to resolve queries about other domains. However, it can use a
+pdns-recursor: recursing backend to provide that functionality. Depending on your
+pdns-recursor: needs, this backend can either be the PowerDNS recursor or an external
+pdns-recursor: one.
