[pkg-dhcp-devel] Bug#587269: DHCPv6 support not enabled

Package: isc-dhcp-client
Version: 4.1.1-P1-3
Severity: important


contrary to the 4.1.1-2 changelog, the isc-dhcp-client package from
experimental does not support DHCPv6.
Checking debian/rules, it still has
and an (outdated) comment about why DHCPv6 should be disabled.

I'm marking the bug as important as the new NetworkManager package will
depend on proper DHCPv6 support in isc-dhcp-client.
