Add support for dnscrypt and dnssec

Feature state

openSUSE Factory


You need to add an third party repository to install dnscrypt and dnssec for encrypting and validating DNS queries. The main repository lacks both packages.

User benefit:

Encrypting DNS queries is an important step forward for improving privacy. It's a reliable and fast service nowadays and is becoming popular. Besides, DNSSEC acts as a complement ensuring the content of these queries.
Right now there's an unofficial repository providing these packages: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/dns/openSUSE_42.1/

On behalf of server:dns repository maintainers:
server:dns is an offical repository of openSUSE. so you can trust it. on Build Service, only the "home:" prefix indicates that repository is 3rd party.
So the feature described is actually a finished one.
If you want to include those 2 packages in repo-oss, you can just click the submit button on Build Service and select the submission target to openSUSE:Factory...personally I think keeping it in a development repository will receive updates and fixes quickly so you don't need to be limited to specific versions on released products.
Anyway it's a just click and go thing.

But this would mean that it's not available as default. I would expect that every current distro has this capability by default.
