RE: DHCP failures (was RE: Do you want to have more meetings outsi de US ?)
I did not say that DHCP should be deprecated. There are real-world
situations like the ones that took down the IETF DHCP service, that are
clearly operational/implementation/deployment rather than protocol issues.
Just because some organizations run DHCP does not mean everyone else MUST
because the IETF elite refuse to allow an operationally different
alternative to be standardized.
