It's been a while since I made an upload of anything DHCP-related, so I thought a general update was deserved.
The lovely test infrastructure that I built had to be cannibalised to stand in for some other hardware that failed on me, so that prevented me from being able to test as easily. Add to that, the distractions of moving house, and I just haven't had the time to do any work on the DHCP 4.1 packaging.
That said, I haven't been completely idle. I've been pressing the ISC DHCP developers to incorporate the LDAP patch, which is extremely popular in some quarters. At the same time, I was able to flush the author of the LDAP patch (he'd seemed to have disappeared) and connected the two parties together. Hopefully we'll see something in 4.2
Today, I updated the 4.1 packages in experimental to 4.1.1, which includes a reintroduced LDAP patch. I think if there's no unfavourable feedback, I'll look at uploading this to unstable in the next month or so, and the great transition to DHCP 4 can commence (assuming the release time is cool with this).
If I could just figure out how to do bridged networking with KVM and still use NetworkManager for my WiFi, I could probably set up a similar test environment to what I had before, on my laptop...
