bind9 has a limit on the number of characters in a single line TXT record. I was unable to provision the DKIM TXT record using propellor due to this limit.

I added a new MTXT record type to Propellor.Types.DNS.Record (patch).

MTXT creates a multiline TXT record. It splits the record's text (say "long string...\") at '\n' and creates a TXT record of the form:

domain IN      TXT     ( "long string..."
        "" )

I'm currently using this recipe to provision the DKIM TXT record.

I want to know if there is a better way to do this without having to add the MTXT record type?
