  unnecessary dependency upon isc-dhcp-client

Status in initramfs-tools package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  with xenial-updates, there is suddenly a dependency [isc-dhcp-client]
  not previously there.  please mark this as
  recommends/suggests/enhances instead of as a depends, as it is not
  critical to the core functionality of the software.  since ubuntu now
  defaults to installing recommends unless configured otherwise, this
  compromise accommodates both the unskilled users as well as those who
  know what they are doing and have disabled automatic installation of
  suggested packages.
