Speaking both as someone trying to get the armhf port into shape and
more generally
we would really like to get the rc bugs fixed sooner than "the next
couple of months".
Especially as 4.1.1-P1-17 (in testing) has a FTBFS bug on all
architectures so we
can't do a binnmu in testing.

I have prepared a NMU to fix the rc bugs in isc-dhcp-client by the most
approaches and was in the processor of discussing it's sponsorship to
with Hector Oron (i'm not a dd yet) when I received your mail.

I appreciate the work I have put into this NMU will be thrown away when the
ultimate soloution of eliminating the embedded code copy is implemented
but I still thing the NMU is worth doing so we can get armhf teting
into shape
sooner rather than later.

The package I'm in the process of trying to get NMU'd is at

Please tell me if you are happy with the NMU so I can upload it promptly.
Alternatively if you have problems with the NMU then please point them
out to me so I can prepare a fixed NMU.

Until/unless I get a response I plan to go through with the plan of a NMU
to delayed/5.
