Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: host/domainname/ip address

/ Sean Donnellan <sean@donnellan.de> was heard to say:
| I was wondering, as I come from a UNIX/Network background, if there are
| any standard ways of representing hostnames, domainnames, and ip addresses
| in DocBook.

This came up recently. From my (as yet unpublised minutes from the
last f2f meeting)

<varlistentry><term>Issue 124: Add markup for hostnames and other host identifiers</term>
We already have a class on systemitem for systemname. We suggest that these
are further useful class values for systemitem but do not warrant a unique
element name. We'll add the following class attributes to systemitem:
domainname, fqdomainname, ipaddress, netmask, etheraddress. We consider
hostname already covered by systemname.
