IPv6 for Fedora services?

Is there any IPv6 plan for *.fedoraproject.org ?

One plan chosen by projects (including wikimedia) is a staged rollout, 
like this:

1) enable IPv6 reachability and AAAA records for DNS servers
2) enable IPv6 for small-audience or developer-only services, such as 
cvs/svn/git services
3) enable IPv6 for primary services, such as public web

Such staged rollouts attempt to balance the potential for service 
disruption due to end-user misconfiguration, with pushing technological 
progress foward.

As of today, for months, the DNS root servers are reachable via IPv6 and 
have AAAA records.

Any chance we could look at step #1 or #2 for Fedora?

I am hoping that Fedora can be a leader rather than a follower in 
deploying this new technology.
