Hi @yspro, thanks for your patch!

I had a look at the whois.nic.ru whois interface and it appears to me that RU-CENTER is actually a registrar, not a registry. They offer the ability to register .org.ru domains and lookup whois data, but they are not maintaining them. Am I right?

Apparently, they also offer whois lookup for several other extensions.

I tried to lookup .org.ru and .net.org domains using the standard .ru registry database and they return no information.

$ ruby-whois darkk.net.ru

Is nic.ru the only source? Who's maintaining .org.ru domains? How many other .ru sub-zones are available out of there?


yspro commented Jul 5, 2012

Russian wikipedia page "http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/WHOIS" says (you can use translate.google.com), that it's recommended to use the official whois-server for a specific zone.
However this rule does not apply for domain names .org.ru, .net.ru, .msk.ru and some other geo-domains. Info on those domains is stored only on whois.nic.ru

Then the question is if we want to add all these sub-domains or not. Adding only .org.ru doesn't make sense to me.

Can you extract a list of all these subdomains?

Here's my comments:

  1. Please don't add extra-features to the patch. If you want to supply a patch for the .name definition, open a different pull request.
  2. Why did you add the dependency to the public_suffix library?
  3. Please don't use loops inside the definition file. The file is going to be converted into JSON, please list the definitions one per line.

Sorry. I haven't much experience with git. I'll try to fix all in nearest days
