Lawrence Teo lets us know that:
Marc Balmer (mbalmer@) posted a patchset on ports@ that makes httpd IPv6 capable. This patchset needs extensive testing on both IPv6 environments as well as IPv4 ones. It should ideally be tested in real-world production environments with complex Apache setups and lots of modules.
And as Stuart Henderson (sthen@) points out on ports@:
Part of this is to test IPv6 operation if you have connectivity (some other areas not directly related to httpd come to mind; web- based applications, log analyzers and so on may require changes).
We also need to find out whether there's any negative effect on normal IPv4 operations. So, users without IPv6 connectivity can still help with this, the most important part of testing.
