[pkg-dhcp-devel] Bug#794771: isc-dhcp-client: replace the debug hook scripts by symlinks to a single script

Package: isc-dhcp-client
Version: 4.3.2-1
Severity: wishlist

There are two debug hook scripts


which have the same contents. For debugging, I suppose that in general,
the user would want to change them in the same way, e.g. setting RUN to
yes on both, and possibly other changes. So, I think that it would be
better to replace these scripts by symbolic links to a same script,
e.g. /etc/dhcp/debug.

Note: It would still be possible to have different code for the enter
and exit hooks by testing $1 (this could be mentioned as a comment).
