Sure. At least occasionally, we manage to be helpful. :-)

This is the same issue as before; you don't have a "localhost" zone.

This means that you don't have a reverse zone file for 127.in-addr.arpa:
; BIND reverse data file for local loopback interface
@ IN SOA localhost. root.localhost. (
1 ; Serial
604800 ; Refresh
86400 ; Retry
2419200 ; Expire
604800 ) ; Default TTL
@ NS localhost.
1.0.0 PTR localhost.

This means nslint is being too picky, but adding a reverse zone file with a PTR
record might hush it up.
