That would be great!

Note that I asked a few ccTLD operators for a stable wildcard record for testing the forwarder for the "bad old bind cname/wildcard bug" and CentralNic assisted
us and put a stable record in at:

*._probe.uk.com. IN CNAME fedoraproject.org.
*._probe.us.com. IN CNAME fedoraproject.org.
*._probe.cn.com. IN CNAME fedoraproject.org.

This can be used for a new test for https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1096240
