Description Enderson Tadeu S. Maia (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-31 11:17:21 UTC
I'll attach the ebuild, correct what's needed.


"This is a simple, straightforward DHCP relay agent which I wrote as
alternative to the ISC relay. 

It's Linux only because it uses the Linux packet socket facility.

If you use this software, please let me know; I would like some idea
if it is generally useful to others.

Either of you want this?
Comment 5 Marcelo Goes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-14 11:50:38 UTC
If nobody is interested in maintaining this package, I could have a look into it.
Comment 6 Roy Marples (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-15 01:32:02 UTC
I'm not to sure what it's really for or how I would use it, so go for it Marcelo
Comment 7 Marcelo Goes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-17 08:32:27 UTC
Well, I already tried a few times in different days, but the homepage is down to
me... So for the moment, nothing additional to be said...

(this is an automated message based on filtering criteria that matched this bug)
'EBUILD' is in the KEYWORDS which should mean that there is a ebuild attached 
to this bug.
This bug is assigned to maintainer-wanted which means that it is not in the 
main tree.

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild 
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The 
sunrise overlay[1] is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to 
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry 
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this 
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

Because this is a mass message, we are also asking you to be patient with us. 
We anticipate a large number of requests in a short time. 

On behalf of the Gentoo Sunrise Team,

Fixes init startup
Comment 11 Theunis 2011-08-15 12:24:03 UTC
Renaming ebuild dhcp-helper-0.5 to dhcp-helper-1.0 works. Fixed /etc/init.d/dhcp-helper script.

Would like to see this package in portage.
