discovery rule hostname is not clear
the usage of this input is not clear, if its a prefix it should be called hostname prefix, alternatively provide an example in an inline help or link to documentation?

Here is the text we can show in help baloon or something:
Hostname for provisioned hosts. Domain will be appended automatically. A hostname based on MAC address will be used when left blank. Use ERB templating to access host attributes and facts. Examples:
- myhost-<%= rand(99999) %>
- myhost-<%= @host.facts['bios_vendor'] + '-' + rand(99999) %>
- myhost-<%= @host.hostgroup.name %>
- myhost-<%= @host.discovery_rule.name %>
- myhost-<%= @host.ip.gsub('.','-') + '-' + @host.hostgroup.subnet.name %>
When creating hostname patterns, make sure the resulting host names are unique. Good approach is to use unique information provided by facter (MAC address, BIOS or serial ID).
