Anyway I'm interested in improving the DHCP protocol </blockquote>
Looking forward to your working on it.&nbsp; I will help where I can with
integration into the server.&nbsp; Really the tough part is the wire
protocol - the rest we can handle very easily.&nbsp; <br>
the wire format is, IMHO not/no longer the main problem. We could have
a working DHCP implementation with a very reasonable amount of work in
the configuration and state-management area. Protocol-wise there is one
unresolved issue for which there is no universal and nice solution.<br>
Damjan: for a summary of the problem see here:

Alex, what can we do about the DHCP contribution? I don't think that it
would make a lot of sense for Damjan to re-implement the stuff already has. For DHCP, we are not talking about a
lot of code - a lot less than even the LDAP mapping. Can't we just
contribute this without incubation?<br>
