+# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description. Line

+# on the right side marks the last column you can put a character in. You must
+# make exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct. It's also

+dhcp: dhcp (DHCP server and client utilities)
+dhcp: This package provides the ISC's DHCP utilities, including both a
+dhcp: server and client. The DHCP protocol allows a host to contact a
+dhcp: central server which maintains a list of IP addresses which may be
+dhcp: assigned on one or more subnets. A DHCP client may request an
+dhcp: address from this pool, and then use it temporarily for communication
+dhcp: on the network. The DHCP protocol also provides a mechanism whereby
+dhcp: a client can learn important details about the network to which it is
+dhcp: attached, such as the location of a default router or name server.
