Why is isc-dhcp-client not recommended?
Take care to branch the right way on equality.

It's not a matter of recommendation, it's that it plain doesn't work. This has been with bootstrap-vz from waaay back when camptocamp used to maintain ec2debian-build-ami (commit by Christian Kaenzig). I successfully verified this a year ago. You are welcom to try running it with isc-dhcp-client, if it works with jessie I'll gladly accept a PR fixing it.
