Package: isc-dhcp-client
Version: 4.1.1-P1-15+squeeze3
Severity: normal

please setup DHCP client default config in a way that it sends the content of /etc/hostname to the DHCP server.
Reason: proper DNS auto registration at my (Debian) DHCP/DNS server for Debian hosts (just like WIndows,
SuSE and so on).
