This is the works of Paul Wouters.

I have pointed this out to him and posted on EPEL issue
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=711899) that this is an
ALPHA release and should not be pushed to production.

It went unnoticed...

opendnssec-1.4.0-0.a1.el6.2 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6
stable repository.
opendnssec-1.4.0-0.a1.fc16.2 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository.
opendnssec-1.4.0-0.a1.fc17.2 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository.

OpenDNSSEC 1.4.0a1 has appeared in repositories that are apparently configured on production systems by default. Consequently, our well-managed 1.3.9 install has been upgraded to 1.4.0a1 and all configuration has been wiped.
