applied, thanks!

I moved it one item below, as IMO DNS and Host are too related to be split by some
general "Options" navigation entry.

Some other points to improve:

- setting the online help, maybe to 'proxmox_node_management' which would make
  it point to:
  (the chapter could maybe do good with some addition w.r.t. first start delay

- It's not clear what unit the start delay has, you could mention that explicitly,
  simplest way to do so is adding a ' (s)' to the fieldLabel after the gettext.

- Wake on LAN could do with a "Local MAC Address" emptyText, combined with the
  onlineHelp button it should then be clear enough.

can you please look into those?

FYI and not directly related:
if we ever expose the vzdump.conf options over GUI I'd also add them here in this
panel, as subpanel; would be a good use of all that empty space ;-)
