Happy New Year.

Eventually I have found some time to return to looking at Samba 3.2 and 

I have a few questions:

    * What is the current status of IPv6 in the Samba 3.2 code?
    * Is there anything that can be tested over IPv6 yet or are you
      still doing the ground work for this?
    * I'm assuming that I am best looking at the test branch?

My plan is to:

    * Look at the code ;-) - doing this now
    * Attempt to use Samba 3.2 over IPv6 server/client (if this is possible)
    * Carry out tests in our lab against Windows Vista and Windows
      Server 2008

I'm also revisiting Samba4 and IPv6 this week.
