Summary: Debian mirrors in 6Bone
This is a summary of my query about 6Bone connected sites that mirror
Debian. Since there are two sites that are currently working and
others are (re)joining 6Bone in the future, I think it is the time to
try to spark some discussion on debian-devel about how to mark these
sites on mirror list as IPv6 reachable.
My suggestion is this: The sites that currently have an A record in
DNS within debian.org domain will get an additional AAAA (and A6?)
record. All the IPv6 sites, .debian.org or not, will be marked as IPv6
reachable in the mirror list listing the services they support over
IPv6. The first IPv6 entries would be ftp.crc.ca and ftp.fi.debian.org
with more sites added when they become available.
Does the above sound as a reasonable thing to suggest on debian-devel?
o ftp.fi.debian.org (trumpetti.ip6.atm.tut.fi in 6Bone)
Not IPv6 reachable yet but getting there:
o Mirror at fhtw-berlin.de
