Unfortunately, but alas. Everybody should just try and get things
together for the next release. Is contrib frozen for 9.1 as well?

I can understand that. AFAIK, there are talks for Ted to step down for
someone else to take over ISC dhcp maintanance. I'll get in contact 
with those people.

Also Micahel Richardsen corrected me on the dhcp patches. There are
generic patches for the "require keyword" and for sending options
that are larger then 256 bytes, so they should benefit everyone, not
just the ipsec people.
