Description (last modified by tomek)

currently BIND 10 supports DHCP option data as CSV or Hex. In the future, other formats might be supported.

The proposal is to change
config set Dhcp4/option-data[0]/csv-format true

config set Dhcp4/option-data[0]/format csv
config set Dhcp4/option-data[0]/format hex

this scheme will allow for future extensions that support other format encodings other than hex or csv.

We have discussed this in detail during team meeting yesterday and decided that it is not worth the effort. The major objection here is that changing the format at this stage would break down existing deployments and people would be forced to change their config files.

We could do that if we had a good reason. But we don't feel that there's a need for any other formats, at least not in the config file. We currently have support for retrieving options from MySQL and PostgreSQL databases. If we ever introduce additional formats, those will likely be for databases.

As such, I'm closing this ticket. If you have a good idea for new option syntax and actual prospective customers that would like to have it implemented, please reopen this ticket.
