[pkg-dhcp-devel] Bug#594339: isc-dhcp: priority and section of dummy packages

Package: isc-dhcp
Version: 4.1.1-P1-9

Having dhcp3-client to be dummy and "Priority: important" in squeeze
does not make much sense.

Please make dhcp3-server and dhcp3-client priority: extra and section: oldlibs.

"Priority: extra" because they are packages that nobody will want to install
in a new system, they are only useful on upgrades.

Also, "Section: oldlibs" will make deborphan to notice that they are good
candidates to be removed, which helps the user to keep the system free
of useless packages.

If you agree please reassign this to ftp.debian.org after modifying
the package.
