Right. Although the package will contain the server, the client and
possibly a relay. Well, probably 2 or 3 binary packages from one
source. But yes, s/protocol/{server,client,relay}/ in the one line
description. This long description should probably only be used for
the server and the client/relay have more terse long descriptions of
what they do, not a description of what DHCPv6 protocol is.
