FS#677 - [avahi] avahi publishes the hostname by default

By default, the ‘disable-publishing’ parameter in the [publish] section of avahi-daemon.conf is set to ‘no’, which can be seen in my opinion as a privacy issue as avahi broadcasts the hostname without the user’s consent even though this has been explicitly disabled in the settings of networkmanager.

Good to know about the deprecation of avahi, thanks.
