[pkg-dhcp-devel] Context for the ISC DHCP 4 transition

I was just curious to get some additional information on the expected
timeline for the transition. Is there actually one? Is it just "when
it will be ready"? I for one am quite interested in getting
NetworkManager 0.8.1 ready for Ubuntu, and it seems to require
isc-dhcp... along with IPv6/DHCPv6 enabled.

On that subject, I've noticed DHCPv6 was disabled. In the process of
getting testing packages ready, I've re-enabled it in a bzr branch and
I have been able to build successfully on Ubuntu Lucid, on the same
day as 4.1.1-1 was uploaded to experimental. I unfortunately have no
idea of which was the cause of the failures, and I'm hoping it was
something that simply was fixed in 4.1.1-1 as it was uploaded to

FWIW, there should have been testing done through the "experimental"
NetworkManager I had uploaded to an unofficial archive, although I
don't have numbers to say *how much* there was.

Aside packages with hooks or dependencies requiring dhcp3, are there
any catches I should be aware of?

Kind regards,
