Subject: [gentoo-dev] Removal of net-misc/udhcp will break systems

1 Not sure where to report this. net-misc/udhcp got masked recently with
2 following notice:
4 - net-misc/udhcp-0.9.9_pre20041216-r4 (masked by: package.mask)
5 /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
6 # Diego Pettenò <flameeyes@g.o> (23 Dec 2008)
7 # Mask these for removal, busybox provides those already, and are
8 # unmaintained. As requested by solar.
10 This should NOT happen until Bug 205286 is resolved. The current
11 Busybox in portage cannot be used as a replacement for udhcp, and dhcpcd
12 is not reliable for many routers (reports broken MAC address), leaving
13 us with no DHCP client on Gentoo.
