Package: netbase
Version: 4.39
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software

>From RFC 3493

> AF_INET6 sockets may be used for both IPv4 and IPv6 communications.

I don't think there is anything else to add to show that the
net.ipv6.bindv6only=1 is wrong since it makes debian non compliant.

I also remind that it is possible to fill bugreports to upstream authors
of uncompliant software.
Filling bugreports to authors of compliant software is not a good practice.

Have a nice day

Thanks for the clarification. In this case I'd say there is nothing
for us to decide, unless someone wants us to overrule the

I'm closing this bug report now - in case someone wants us to overrule
specifically this decision from Marco:

please raise a new bug report asking for an overruling.
