You mention in the previous note that you're using opentracker.  What
has your experience been with opentracker and IPv6?  It's been about a
year since I looked into this for Fedora's use, but opentracker was
too buggy (trivial to crash with a query URL) to be usable.  Has it
improved enough to be considered stable?  Have they fixed it so you
can have a single binary rather than two (one for IPv4 and one for
IPv6) ?
