Heads up: impending IPv6 Test Day

Hey, folks. If you follow the trac ticket notifications on test@ you may
have noticed this already, but I know it's easy to tune those out, and
I'm CCing devel@ so people following that list know about this too.

We're planning a Fedora IPv6 Test Day to coincide with World IPv6 Day on
June 8. This has been kicked off by some folks inside Red Hat whose job
it is to understand IPv6 (those poor, poor kids), so thanks to Linda and
her team for bringing it to the Fedora community. We have a trac ticket
for co-ordinating the event here:


and the Wiki page for it is here:


it would be really good if people can pencil in this event on their
calendars so we can get some testing of Fedora 15's IPv6 preparedness,
and it would also be great if those who understand what the hell they're
doing with IPv6 could check over the Wiki page for accuracy and
completeness. Finally it would also help if people who don't understand
what the hell they're doing with IPv6 - like me! - could try and follow
the instructions, and let us know - via this thread, or the trac ticket
- if they struggle or find something unclear or don't seem to be able to
make it work as intended, so we can improve the instructions. I've
already noted, for example, that it's not particularly clear what you
should do if you're using a router - whether to try and set the tunnel
up on the router, or whether you can just do it on one of the machines
behind the router.

Thanks everyone!
