I use Python to update the pdns database from other sources and it has to calculate and update the serial.  We use PowerAdmin as well which does the same thing.  It would be better if this were internal to pdns to centralize it for consistency.  We may end up writing our own web administration front end and this would be one less thing to deal with in our code.  It would be very beneficial to the HTTP API users too.  There are some new web admin tools out there starting to use the HTTP API to be database agnostic which would benefit from the serial being handled internally.
Thanks for the great software,

Hi All,

We'd like to have your input on a topic we've been discussing
internally. In its current state, the autoserial functionality is
somewhat incomplete, badly documented and non-intuitive to use.

As such, we're currently on the fence on what to do with this feature.
In our opinion there are 2 options for autoserial going forward to
PowerDNS 4.0:

1. Removal of the functionality
2. Making it a correct and supported feature

As such, we'd like to have your input on this topic. Do you use the
autoserial functionality? If so, tell us how you us it.

You can comment on this issue either by replying to this email, or if
you prefer in private by emailing to powerdns.ideas at powerdns.com.
