Summary: libdhcp : IPv6 and IPv4 DHCP client and network configuration library 

------- Additional Comments From [EMAIL PROTECTED]  2006-06-05 17:49 EST -------
Great news! I'm glad to hear loader2 will now be IPv6 capable with libdhcp 

I've also just heard that libdhcp has been added to the dist-fc6 brew package
list, and it is now building in brew - the packages should be in tomorrow's

Actually, adding the pump.[ch] Doxygen documentation was something I hadn't
got around to yet ... I guess I'll continue holding off on that.
The pump API is entirely superfluous as is, and is just a wrapper around the
underlying libdhcp API, which is fully Doxygen documented.

As for 'fully integrated', probably not, but ISC have already agreed to ship
dhcdbd in the contrib/ directory of their source tarball, so would probably
be amenable to shipping the libdhcp4client patch in contrib/ also. 
DHCPv6 is not an ISC product, but is a sourceforge project - I can attach
the libdhcp6client patch in sourceforge, so that should not be a problem -
I'll get going on this now.

Bear in mind that libdhcp (and dhcdbd) are actually a stopgap until ISC release
their super-duper integrated DHCP and DHCPv6 natively D-BUS based server and
client, which is rumored to be in dhcp-4.0.x, to be released within the next
year or so (I have not heard any hard dates yet) .
