Hmm, I don't see a 1.0.8 or a 1.0.2.  The latest release was,
and the  next release will be 0.9.8.  This next release will be from
this branch:

I would like to encourage the inclusion of two patches into v1.0.2 
before it ships:

commit c0efef8c92aecb23df7dcbf3670236719d097873
     dhcp: add special machine-id parse functio

commit 1b1b4bd91c29425c25e8e979cd77b7a67deb9bf5
     dhcp: write DUID out to lease file if not already present

I actually pushed these to that branch and master yesterday after
testing those patches and ensuring that my modifications to them were


Without these the DUID support just does not work.

And, speak of DUID ... I am planning to write a small utility program to 
help with DUIDs.  It would output two lines.  The first line with be the 
default-duid in "dhclient format" and the second with be the hex-string 
equivalent for use with libvirt and dnsmasq. By default, it would 
generate DUID-UUID based on the machine-id. Optionally it would product 
DUID-LL and DUID-LLT format when the MAC is provided.

I am going to do this for myself but is there interest in including such 
a utility in the NM package?
