Description

According to https://blogs.gnome.org/lkundrak/2019/08/06/networkmanager-1-20/, "The internal default DHCP client is used by default. It’s smaller and faster than dhclient, which was used previously. NetworkManager supports multiple different DHCP clients and the users and distributors have an option to modify the default". We have a custom config for the traditional isc-dhcp-client that e.g. avoids leaking the Tails' hostname on the network. Can we port that config to NM's internal DHCP client? Or should we simply revert to using isc-dhcp-client?
