RC bugs 2013/06

until a few hours ago I thought there wouldn't be anything for my weekly RC bug report. then I at least found one bug to work on:

  • #698582 – isc-dhcp-client: "isc-dhcp-client: prompting due to modified conffiles which were not modified by the user: /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf"
    some triaging, prepare preliminary patch
