Description Floris Bos 2014-08-17 16:00:06 CEST
It would be nice if extensive verification is skipped when querying unbound.conf options with "unbound-checkconf -o <option>" 

Use case: being able to call "unbound-checkconf -o auto-trust-anchor-file" in the startup script to check if an auto-trust-anchor-file is specified in the configuration, for the purpose of deciding whether or not it makes sense to run unbound-anchor prior to starting unbound.

Currently this fails with an "unbound-checkconf: fatal error: auto-trust-anchor-file does not exist in chrootdir" error if the file specified doesn't exist yet.
