Well, I performed a quick-n-dirty conversion in about 15 minutes by
grepping all of the domains for which we were the master server out of
the named.conf file and using a simple shell script to run axfr-get for
each of those domains. Then I cat'd (catted?) those files together, ran
'sort -u' on it and ran tinydns-data on the result. Voila! I also
through together a Python script to clean it up and organize it a bit.
That made it a bit easier to maintain.
That provided a useable server, but we're working on a way to manage it
all from a sql database with a CGI frontend.
