Fine with me.  But I'm missing a way to know when I should stop preventing dhcpcd to upgrade.  Meaning when there's a dhcpcd version/release that works for s6 and/or runit...

Also, is there a bug/defect I can subscribe to, so I keep track of it?  Usually bugs/defects don't give a hint about releases with the fix, so that's sort of parallel to what I mentioned 1st...

Thanks !
