[ldns-users] Second candidate for the ldns-1.7.1 release

Dear all,

We have a second candidate for the upcoming 1.7.1 release of ldns.
This candidate has the review feedback on the first candidate addressed.
 This feedback was about compiler warnings on certain systems, a
documentation omission, and a missing Makefile.PL in the
contrib/DNS-LDNS perl module contribution.

Because the feedback did not affect core ldns functionality, I consider
it safe to have the actual release still coming Friday.

Please have another good look at this release candidate and let us know
if anything is wrong.  If all is well, the actual release will follow
Friday the 26th of July 2019.
