Gentoo Linux participates in World IPv6 day

In light of World IPv6 day, the Gentoo Linux Infrastructure team would like to announce new IPv6-availability of several services, and list the existing IPv6 services. Every service listed below is running a dual-stack native IPv4/IPv6 service, no tunnels.

The new services available via IPv6 are:

The existing services available via IPv6 are:

  • CVS/SVN/Git services for developers
  • rsync:// - our primary rsync rotation
  • rsync://${CC} - our regional community rsync rotations
  • A number of our mirrors

All of our IPv6 services will remain online after today, unless serious IPv6 problems (esp. regarding routing) are encountered.

Gentoo would like to extend thanks to all our sponsors & mirrors who have provided IPv6 service, and the servers to make use of it!

Hi, how about some follow-up stats in a new post? Thanks.

DNS resolution fails on all new ipv6 enabled sites.
We have temporarily disabled it to work out some bugs w/ the load balancers.

You can go direct past the load balancers for now.
Thanks, I was just going to ask what exactly went bad and forced you to disable AAAA again.

keepalived/IPVS for the load balancing work.
The lingering IPv6 issues have been either support within webapps (eg modified phpBB is hard to upgrade), or Internet routing.
