[pkg-dhcp-devel] Proposed solution

It sounds as if resolvconf should have its hook script in place (that
is, in /etc/dhcp3/) before isc-dhcp-client is uploaded to unstable.
Otherwise someone will install isc-dhcp-client with an existing version
of resolvconf (i.e., up to and including version 1.45) and get
unpleasant results, as described by Vincent Danjean earlier in #583991.
The new version of resolvconf which realizes this should remain
compatible with dhcp3-client. This new version, number 1.46, would be
uploaded to unstable before isc-dhcp-client is uploaded to unstable.
(I will open a new bug report asking for isc-dhcp-client to Conflict
with resolvconf <= 1.45. This dependency will force an upgrade of
resolvconf when isc-dhcp-client is installed.)
My first thought would be to take the following actions in the
maintainer scripts of resolvconf 1.46.
1. Move the conffile according to the instructions in
http://wiki.debian.org/DpkgConffileHandling. Don't use
dpkg-maintscript-helper which isn't available in the dpkg package in
stable. That is, move /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/resolvconf to
2. Symlink the old location to the new location if isc-dhcp-client is
not yet installed. That is, ln -s
3. If isc-dhcp-client is installed, delete the symlink from the old
location to the new location (that is, from
/etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/resolvconf) if such a symlink exists.
Anyone see any problems with this?
