ISC DHCP 4.4.3-P1 is the final planned release:
Which means it will not be maintained for security issues or bug fixes.
The server component should be replaced by ISC Kea:
The dhcp client can simply be replaced by dhcpcd (already packaged).
We need to change any references in the Mageia installer and tools to dhcp-client to use dhcpcd instead (at least by default).
To be more specific, drakx-installer-images BR's dhcp-client, libguestfs BR's and Requries's dhcp-client, and clusterscripts-server-pxe and pxe Requires dhcp-server.
Given the elements luigi cites, assigning this to the tools group.
As I need a DHCP server for my env, I've started to work on adding the kea server to mga8, writing the spec file, based on the Fedora one. We miss some other packages so this will take a bit of time before it's ready.
However, I wonder whether we should now drop dhcpd. THe announce dates from the 5th of october. If a group of volunteers jump on the maintenance, we could still keep it, as it's too early to say. Considring how widely that server is used, I'd be surprised everybody moves just like that. Non talking of the conf file modifications that could make the replacement difficult (especially when updating a package). Have not looked at that yet.
I use it too, but we can't just assume someone will maintain it for the life of Mageia 9. Remember if that changes it could be revived later.
