Description of problem: It's just an enhancement I would like to see: It would
be nice to have some zone files included as examples in /usr/share/doc/bind. If
you need a new zonefile, you mostly take another one and simply change it to
your needs. So it would be nice to find some examples on your system without
having to search for them somewhere else.
Okay, why not. Do you have any idea what examples would you like to see there?

Zonefile for a reverse zone

Another zonefile for a reverse zone
I attached some sample zonefiles that include all the standard ressource record
types and some comments.
It looks good! Could you add some how-to/info what every file and items in these
files mean and how to modify/use it? I think it may be helpful for new users to
have a "quick start" how-to along these examples.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.9 update will contain only security and performance related fixes thus I'm closing this issue. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 already contains better documentation than RHEL 4.
