Subject Re: IPv6 Feature branch
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2015 21:10:07 GMT
Dhruba's off in a different timezone. So he might not be able to. I'll ask
though.

Nate, I, and Nemanja will be working on this. We're really hoping the patch
will be living for just a few weeks or a month at most.
Hopefully a good deal of the code we write will be testable so that will
result in some good clean up. Though it won't be a primary top line goal.
