Thanks for sharing both.

Like the built-in sanity checks...Wonder why the fedora folks don't
automate the serial number update, since in my experience that seems to be
one of the top silly mistakes with BIND updates?

Our push process sets that to the mtime of the zone for non-dynamic zones,
which seems to work well except for the occasional DNS validation tool
baulking that we're not using YYYYMMDDNN format.  :-)
