"All other DHCP plugins are considered in maintenance mode. However we are in no hurry to drop code that works for people, so if you use it, you may continue to do so (but note that your distribution might decide to no longer build the DHCP plugin for you). Patches are of course accepted, but I don't think we should add more features."
