Sat Nov 7 11:23:17 2015, original submission:

This is tracking ticket for the (default) metaserver & IPv6 issues. I'm not expecting this to get fully resolved soon.

So far:
- The metaserver code has had IPv6 support for some time, and it exist in both branches (the main branch, and legacy one compatible with older php-versions)
- Freeciv itself has had IPv6 support several versions already. (Not sure if it was first introduced in 2.1 or 2.2) Anyway, 2.0 used by the warserver people doesn't have it.
- The Windows version still doesn't have IPv6 support. We hope to get it in 2.6.
- I run test IPv6-only metaserver on cazfi.net for some years, but it's now defunct
- We have no IPv6 enabled server to run metaserver on

While we can have different test setups with IPv6-only metaservers, for the final switch of the default metaserver, there's one big issue to be solved; interactions where IPv4-only and IPv6 enabled freecivs are involved. Metaserver can't just give out IPv6 address of the freeciv server to the IPv4-only client.
