[Dnsmasq-discuss] can't get multiple domains to work

Dear all,

first time poster here so first things first, thanks to all of you that
have worked on dnsmasq, all of us here have greatly benefited for years
from this great piece of software.

Second, my google-fu and manpage reading are failing me and I can't seem to
find a way to have dnsmasq resolve queries for multiple domains. I've found
some posts from 2008 about introducing the feature and a recent one about
multiple domains, but for different ranges.

What I'm dealing with is a change of domain, so right now dnsmasq.conf has
domain=good and eventually it will be domain=better , but during the
transition phase it would be useful if it could be domain=good,better so
that queries for host.good and host.better resolve to the same dhcp-host

is that possible? what's the actual syntax? The manual mentions "domainS",
plural, but not if there is a particular syntax to specify them and comma
does not work (for example for local it specifically mentions

I guess the alternative if the above isn't possible would be to allow any
kind of domain to basically be ignored so that entries are returned as long
as the host path matches (this is just during the transition phase so it
would be ok)
