Some IPv6 issues

When installing F15 ALPHA TC2 in a IPv6 only environment I encounter
Same as F14 where I already have filed bug 633815, anaconda stops when
it can't find a IPv4 DHCP lease, altough it as a perfect IPv6 address.
As I know what I am doing I switch off IPv4 in the GUI and things work
fine. But I doubt if the not so technical end-user will understand this.
Why is anaconda not focused on just getting network connectivity and
does it insist on getting an IPv4 address?
bugzilla.redhat.com does not yet resolve to a IPv6 address, making it
impossible to save a traceback directly from anaconda. I filed this as
bug 635985. But as is noted there this is not actually a fedora bug. Can
anyone tell me who I should convince to make bugzilla.redhat.com
available in the IPv6 domain?
When I start anaconda in IPv6 only environment and configure static
addresses, the nameserver adress is not transfered to /etc/resolve.conf.
So in the installation process name resolving is not possible. I will
file this bug shortly.
During the installation I do not get any repo GUI to point anaconda to
the repo's I want to use. Is this a bug or a feature by design? As the
default value's for the repo's don't work in my IPv6 setup, it is not
possible to do a network installation. I don't know wether the default
repo's faile because of the name-resolve issue or because the mirrorlist
returns non IPv6 hosts. I haven't figured this out yet.
At this stage I think F15 is definitly not ready for IPv6.
