Description

a year ago
Change discovery of services from '_flyweb._tcp' and '_http._tcp' to have a dot suffix at the end: '_flyweb._tcp.' and '_http._tcp.'

This is because most implementations include the dot when returning service names, even if you search for a service name without the dot, and this mismatch leads to subtle bugs where services are just not seen because the implementation thinks the service names don't match.
