I am not sure why I haven't forwarded it yet to you ;-)
It has been more than a year since it was filed...

Subject: Bug#333557: fail2ban: add a reverse DNS PTR lookup when logging IP
It would be nice if fail2ban did a reverse DNS lookup, i.e. a PTR lookup,
when logging/emailing/etc, to show the domain name, or part thereof,
of the culprit. This is often the first thing a sysadmin might do when
they see the info, so we could save them the bother.
Since this consumes resources, and perhaps some systems might not have
DNS configured, this could be optional and default to off.
Of course, often a system doesn't have a PTR record; we could show just
the SOA in that case, like dig -x does, perhaps?
thanks much for considering,
