Package: ifupdown
Version: 0.8.16
Severity: minor


The example that interfaces(5) shows is very complex: it uses hotplug,
a non-debian map-scheme script, map, etc. While it's interesting to show
the amount of available advanced features, it'd be good to start with a
much simpler example, such as a mere:

auto eth0

iface eth0 inet dhcp

, and a mere:

auto eth0

iface eth0 inet static

which would cover a very large part of the actual usage, while not
confusing the user right from the start with a complex setup.
