Uh? Can you please explain?
Even though I'm not following the upstream evolution I'm a user of the
shorewall package, which has IPv6 support even though disabled by
default. Why we now need a separate package now?
It needs to be a separate package, because that is the way it is
distributed upstream. ie. shorewall6, with IPv6 support is very distinct
from shorewall, with IPv4 support.
For more information see <http://www.shorewall.net/IPv6Support.html>.
