Subject Re: [RFC][ACS41] "ipv6" branch
Date Tue, 29 Jan 2013 22:17:37 GMT
Is every networkguru should own it's IP database? In that case, I'd
like to call it "direct_ipv6_address"...

I haven't done anything especially for AAAA, just add the name to
hosts file like we did before. Is there anything else we need to do?
