Can you please re-send this mail to submit@... and put the  
below lines as first lines of the mail body:?:

"""
Package: x2gothinclient
Severity: wishlist
"""

My suggestion would be to improve this script a little further. From  
Debian Edu I know that it is rather easy to retrieve the hostname from  
DNS.

Like this: MAC -> DHCP -> retrieve IP -> DNS -> set FQDN (revDNS) as hostname

If this fails, MAC as hostname is a fallback that is good enough.

Thanks+Greets,
Mike
