time to stop shit-stirring and get to work, eh?


20% for .gov .... Compared to and most of RoW that is outstanding progress. Kudos.

I'd prefer to see serious lessons learned from those guys to help get the other 80% IPv6 visible in .gov and encourage other gov.cctlds to do likewise. Shouting Fail doesn't help anyone.

Incidentally the deadline is useful. I found World IPv6 day in June 2011 helpful in concentrating my mind to get a bunch of domains that had stayed resolutely v4 only and their hosted services on v6 including local lSOC chapter and other community sites. Just in time is fine particularly as they remained up on v6 since. So no effort required for World IPv6 launch earlier this year. :slight_smile:

So big tick to those .gov services now on v6.
