Dear all,

with a slight risk of talking to myself let me leak some
information by mentioning that I today have reached a
patch for our FTP client that enables IPv6 support.
It is presently tested in GNU/Linux, GNU/kFreeBSD,
OpenBSD, and FreeBSD to my satisfaction.

I will continue to disect the text some more, but the
solution is related to the patch I crafted last year
for the package "netkit-ftp" in Debian. Some mechanisms
have now improved with the help of the experience I have
acquired since then.

Keeping in mind the backlog that exists in GNU Inetutils
for my previous suggestions, there seems to be no hurry
to submit also the present code for evaluation. The code
I contributed to the TFTP server is closing in on eight
months by now!

Best regards,
  Mats E A
