Running the `prosodyctl` management command for an unrelated task, I got the following output:

$ prosodyctl --root cert import /etc/letsencrypt/live

Prosody was unable to find lua-unbound
This package can be obtained in the following ways:

Debian/Ubuntu | sudo apt install lua-unbound
luarocks | luarocks install luaunbound
Source |

Old DNS resolver library will be used
More help can be found on our website, at

Imported certificate and key for hosts

It looks like lua-unbound is not in the repositories yet.

Additional info:
* package version: prosody-1:0.12.1-1
This task depends upon

Sidenote: lua-unbound is mentioned in  FS#74159

It appears that lua-unbound is only an optional dependency (which is not currently packaged).

That seems to be the case, yes. It's just that upstream annoyingly decided to print out this header every time `prosodyctl` is called. this lead me to believe that upstream are deprecating the old resolver and replacing it. But I can't find any actual evidence for that.
