I finally got around to updating the wiki page today.  Here is the link
for those who wish to have it as a reference or perhaps would like to
contribute to further improving it:


I also made a comment to https://bugs.debian.org/860928 regarding the
temporary files that dhclient leaves cluttering /etc if the mv to
/etc/resolv.conf fails (e.g., because it is immutable).

I also filed https://bugs.debian.org/879949 as a wishlist bug to have
dhclient-script include a header comment in /etc/resolv.conf.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in the thread.
