Just a small update regarding hackathon.

Bernie and I received a couple of responses so far. One new topic has
been proposed and seems to be getting some traction: RFC7550/RFC3315bis
changes. There will be at least two server implementations to be tested:
Cisco's CNR and ISC's Kea. We're lacking client support, so the plan is
to hack a client during the hackathon. It seems the easiest open source
client to modify is Dibbler, but we're also looking at the ISC DHCP
client modification.

There's a team from Tsinghua university that's interested in developing
YANG module for DHCPv6 server. The code to be extended is Kea.

We also have one newcomer (both to IETF and to hackathon) who is
interested in participating! Welcome!

Please keep in mind that IETF is about rough consensus and running code.
We usually focus on the consensus part, but here's your chance to help
with the running code as well.
