comment mdadm: Disk configuration by UUID
I am not aware of it being deprecated. It just isn't necessary. The kernel will auto-discover a lot. AFAIK 99% of the time you don't need to use that. But I am sure there are situations where it wouldbe useful.

comment Bind and DNSmasq conflicting
Yes, but isn't there any way to use both on a machine? - Sure, assign multiple addresses if the machine doesn't have them. Configure each DNS server to bind to a specific IP only.
