You absolutely cannot respect the ordering in resolv.conf; at least not if you're relying on someone else's resolver. If the orchestration software depends on specific results being returned in particular orders, the orchestration software should provide a mechanism to generate them. > Similarly, you can't just search all search domains in parallel and > take the first response. The ordering is meaningful. It should not be, and more to the point will not reliably be, meaningful. You are arguing for introducing performance penalties into musl that do not affect you but do very much affect lots of other users. I hope they do not happen -- musl is not the right place to fix your problem. khm
