I added some comments on the PR. First I thought this is a duplicate of T2507 but technically it's not as pdns-recursor supports 2 types of lua file: lua-dns-script and lua-config-file. This task is for lua-dns-script while T2507 is for lua-config-file.

Incorporated the suggestions in the PR and pushed them up to github for review.

Do I need to do more to get the PR merged?

Maybe the problem was that it exposed a configuration only understood by pdns-recursor, so replacing it with something else would be impossible if we ever considered so? That was the reason for not allowing certain patches in the past.

No idea. It just sat there for a while so I closed it. I assumed there was no interest.

why don't we chang unbound to coredns ? Coredns will be more stronger thant unbound.

This topic is discussing a feature in powerdns recursor and this comment looks to be out of scope for this discussion. Plese move your question to a new topic
