How is that related? Or am I using certbot on Debian wrong? I simply added
an entry manually. I don't even want a service to mess around with DNS, at

Which in my experience it is not. You can add the entry manually, which is
what we'd have done for taler.

If you can tell me more about this, and why you think that software is
required for this, then it would be in my responsibility to work on this.
