I have gone through all of the old SQA tests and have updated them for Deadwood 2.
The issue with the tests that didn't start MaraDNS was because they weren't supposed to start MaraDNS; the tests are to see how Deadwood handles the upstream server not replying. I have noted this in the comments for the tests.
My next task is to add tests for all of the Deadwood 2 parameters, namely:
resurrections (This will need a few different tests)

Note that the PGP signatures no longer are available with both a SHA-1 and RIPEMD-160 version of the hashes signed; I have looked at the relevant cryptographic literature and feel confident that RIPEMD-160 currently is secure. So, the PHP signatures will from now on just use RIPEMD-160.
