Please note that, if you use this experimental project in any production environment, you are on your own. This is a personal project which is developed according to the specific needs of its author. It is not meant to be a generic solution.

Currently, the developer does not use it to maintain DNS data, so further development will take place at a very slow pace. At this time, no new features or bug fixes have been planned. The project no longer accepts feature requests, bug reports or any other user contribution or feedback. Please, do not contact the developer for any reason.

If an extra feature or a fix of a specific bug is important for your use case scenario, then please consider cloning the source code repository and making any required modifications in your own space. If you lack the technical expertise for this process, then please consider hiring a developer to make and maintain these modifications for you. Please note that the author is not available for hire.

Finally, it is recommended to take a look at the new HTTP API of PowerDNS and also at projects that use this API for the management of DNS data.
