RE: IPv6

My question was about IPv6 support in CVS. If anybody is working on it, or
if it is even included in some devel release. If not, it was just a hint
for those, who want to enhance CVS to be up to date with the next
generation internet technology ;-)

Details how to adapt existing apps to be ipv6-aware can be found eg. here:

The web site contains a section:

        2. use getaddrinfo() and getnameinfo() everywhere.

        getaddrinfo() and getnameinfo() are new address independent variant
that hides every gory detail in name-to-address translation, or vice versa.

So I guess that the next generation Internet technology contains the notion of host names. The cvs command would use the hostname in

        cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden/some/path/cvsroot co module

Does CVS have to be modified to use one of those two ipv6 functions?
