Hi Roy,

Thank you for creating the great dhcpcd software (and openresolve).

Yes, I imported dhcpcd into DFly for the better IPv6 experience. The intention is to replace the dhclient and rtsold, but I haven't found enough time to finish the transition yet. More tests and some significant cleanups to the rc scripts are required. I think I'll have more time to continue the work in about two months. (By the way, I'm still working on updating the RC scripts w.r.t. freebsd and need to finish this first.)

Awesome! I noticed that you released new versions and intended to update ours. It's really great that you provide us with better support.

It's on my todo list ;). There shouldn't be anything to prevent this transition.

Thank you for looking into DFly.
