The Sun dhcp server is part of ON. I would like to move this to illumos-userland


Updated by Andrew Stormont almost 7 years ago

I think illumos-userland is dead. Do we even need to keep the Sun dhcp server?

If we yank it out of here, we should probably stick it into its own repo. I might spend a bit of effort setting that up. Basically, one imagines that illumos could have more repos than just illumos-gate, to handle the things that we eject from illumos-gate. Those things could use the same build infrastructure, but be very much smaller.

This is far from the only thing I'd like to punt out of tree. (Printing anyone? :-)

any reason these were left in the gate?
