            Bug ID: 1057
           Summary: Allow for multiple protocols to be specified in a rule
           Product: nftables
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: nft
          Assignee: pablo at netfilter.org
          Reporter: karol at babioch.de

Since DNS is allowed over both UDP as well as TCP, I have to specify two rules
each time I want to allow DNS traffic. This looks something like this:

    oif eth0 udp dport domain accept
    oif eth0 tcp dport domain accept

In an example found online [1] someone showed the following example:

    {udp, tcp} sport domain ip daddr accept

Apparently this was never tested. At least it doesn't work for me. For the
example above it would look something like this:

    oif eth0 {udp, tcp} dport domain accept

This would make rulesets easier to read, which is why I want to suggest this as
future enhancement.
