Since the initial import, resolvd(8) has seen:
From manual page description (at the time of writing):
resolvd handles the contents of /etc/resolv.conf, which contains details of the system's DNS nameservers, and is read by the resolver routines in the C library. resolvd checks whether unwind(8) is running and monitors the routing socket for proposals sent by dhclient(8), slaacd(8), or network devices which learn DNS information such as umb(4).
It remains a work-in-progress.

Do we really need a daemon for this? I agree that dnsmasq can be useful for certain things like you have various internal .dom1.lan .dom2.lan etc name servers and you want to route the request to the proper NSes but as I said we have dnsmasq, why to make something else now?!? Also in normal scenarios it is not even needed, why do we need another useless daemon running all the time for name resolution?
