Which is why I mentioned the DHCP relay.

Somewhere back towards the beginnings of this thread there was a
reference to a blog post that complained that they couldn't workout
how to send a git pull request to us.  I've forwarded that to our
dhcp team.  For future reference dhcp-bugs at isc.org or dhcp-suggest at isc.org
would have been fine places to send the request.  So to the bug
reporting form on isc.org which lets you select if it is bug,
suggestion or a security issue.  There also the general contact
form which would get to the dhcp team after being forwarded a couple
of times.
