    2014-11-20 - mt@suse.de - Applied contrib/ldap/dhcpd-conf-to-ldap patch by Ales Novak to reorder config to add all global options or option declarations to the dhcpService object instead to create new service object (bsc#886094,ISC-Bugs#37876). [+ dhcp-4.2.x-contrib-conf-to-ldap-reorder.886094.patch] - Applied an upstream patch by Thomas Markwalder adding missed mapping of SHA TSIG algorithm names to their constants to enable hmac-sha1, hmac_sha224, hmac_sha256, hmac_sha384 and hmac_sha512 authenticated dynamic DNS updates (bsc#890731, ISC-Bugs#36947). [+ dhcp-4.2.x-ddns-tsig-hmac-sha-support.890731.patch] - Decline IPv6 addresses on Duplicate Address Detection failure and stop client message exchanges on reached MRD rather than at some point after it. Applied fedora patches by Jiri Popelka and added DAD reporting via exit 3 to the dhclient-script and a fix to use correct address variables in the DEPREF6 action (bsc#872609,ISC-Bugs#26735,ISC-Bugs#21238). [+ dhcp-4.2.x-dhcpv6-decline-on-DAD-failure.872609.patch, + dhcp-4.2.x-dhcpv6-retransmission-until-MRD.872609.patch] - Applied backport patch by William Preston avoiding to bind ddns socket in the server when ddns-update-style is none (bsc#891655). [+ dhcp-4.2.x-disable-unused-ddns-port-in-server.891655.patch] - Applied patch for the contrib/ldap/dhcpd-conf-to-ldap script fixing subclass statement handling (bnc#878846,[ISC-Bugs #36409]) [+ dhcp-4.2.4-P2-bnc878846-conf-to-ldap.patch] - Updated licence statement and FSF address in our scripts. - Added missed service_add_pre macro calls for dhcrelay services

    2014-09-02 - ro@suse.de - sanitize release line in specfile

    2014-08-18 - mt@suse.de - Disabled /sbin/service legacy-action hooks on openSUSE <= 13.1, which does not support it and causes build failure (bnc#891961).

    2014-07-18 - mt@suse.de - Fixed to require iproute2 in dhcp-client package (bnc#885399) - Disarmed dhclient-script when wicked is the network service, as wicked is using an another dhcp client (runtime conflict), NetworkManager an own script and sysconfig-network is gone on sles12 and opensuse > 13.1, so it is obsolete and unsupported.

    2014-06-10 - mt@suse.de - Fixed /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd fillup in dhcp server post-install. - Fixed dhcp server start script to use correct libdir (bnc#868250) - Fixed dhcp server to chown leases to run user at start (bnc#868253) [+ 0020-dhcp-4.2.x-chown-server-leases.bnc868253.patch] - Fixed to write missed dhcp-ldap debug level messages (bnc#835818) [+ 0019-dhcp-4.2.x-ldap-debug-write.bnc835818.patch] - Fixed unsupported dhclient-script used by sysconfig ifup to provide a function to calculate netmask. NetworkManager provides an own one.

    2014-05-21 - jsegitz@novell.com - added necessary macros for systemd files

    2014-04-24 - dmueller@suse.com - remove gpg-offline dependency (blocks rebuilds) as checking is already done by source validator

    2014-03-28 - mt@suse.de - Applied fixes for DHCP over IPoIB by Mellanox (bnc#870535) [+ 0017-dhcp-4.2.6-lpf-ip-over-ib-support.patch, + 0018-dhcp-4.2.6-improved-xid.patch]
