I've got a lot of virtual routers in different places (400x) that ship with

As the next rollout gets closer, I already switched to Buster (which should
also become stable soon).

Currently I use this to build some test VMs:
(Feel free to use everyone - does not build currently).

As you can see, I tried to mix the dependencies which obviously did not

I might have to say that my requirements are rather low on DHCP
configuration. Most of my setups use the MySQL integration, PXE, etc. - I
am unfamiliar with classes.
On the other hand, my setups are rather "large" scale (up to 4.000 users /
leases per instance).

If the test releases are available through a repository like Sury's, I am
happy with that. I will then build images and try them using some real
traffic (large public wifi mesh network - all kinds of devices - lot of

Kind regards
