Bug#275360: [Patch] example patch showing where to hook dhcp network config to get dhcp->static config

On 04/01/07, Alex Owen <r.alex.owen@gmail.com> wrote:
This patch is in a VERY EARLY state. It inserts into
/etc/dhclient-script so that the ip/mask/route etc form dhcp can be
captured. This then needs to be put into the debconf database. this
will allow  development of static net config from a dhcp boot.

The patch writes debconf-set statements to a file which could later be
sourced to set the values in debconf-db

Opps... here is the patch
