Subject: IPv6 patch from Jun-ichiro itojun Hagino San

Something still on our plate, which somehow either dropped
off, or I missed us taking a deceision on this: IPv6

    * Jun-ichiro itojun Hagino's [PATCH] IPv6 enable patch
        Message-ID: <>
        Status: Lars +1 (on concept) Dirkx +1 (tested)

If it was discussed and reached a conclusion on, sorry. Meanwhile we have
confirmation from the kame crowd that the code is fully theirs and they do
not mind it t be folded in under our the berkely licence; i.e. no gnu
tainting from any gnu of whatever.

We have a good patch (IMHO) from Jun-ichiro itojun Hagino San. It works
for me on FreeBSD and Solaris and at the last two IETF's I've had it
confirmed from quite a few people that it does work. Within the limits
of todays IPv6 of course.

I know that there are issues left to deal with; with the sockaddr
scheme and with the exact representation of the URL's themselfes.

But in order to make progress I'd really, as in REALLY, would like to
commit the patch now for either 1.3.x or 2.0.

IPv6 is going to be a pain, we will have to learn how to deal with IPv6
anyway and the earlier the better. IPv6 wont go away by ignoring it,
neither did the 100x year problem :-)


I hate rollout meetings. Stick yer head in the sand meetings. Thats
what they are.
