#17861 closed enhancement (fixed)

RFE: Remove +ipv6 and make it default

Reported by: raimue (Rainer Müller) Owned by: raimue (Rainer Müller)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.7.0
Keywords: ipv6 Cc: pmq@…, ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt),…, akitada@…,…, landonf (Landon Fuller), blair (Blair Zajac), vincent-opdarw@…,…, afb@…
Port: bro, claws-mail, curl, djbdns, epic5, ethereal, fping, gauche, hfsrsync, imap-uw, net-snmp, oftpd, openldap, qt3-mac, sylpheed, sylpheed-devel, tin, tin-devel, tin-recent, wireshark, xchat2

Description (last modified by raimue (Rainer Müller))

Some ports still have a +ipv6 variant. Most of them only pass --disable-ipv6/--enable-ipv6 to the configure script and do not add additional dependencies. As many other ports already provide support for IPv6 by default, I would like to remove +ipv6 altogether and support IPv6 by default also for these ports.

Affected ports:

bro pmq@… r44844
claws-mail nomaintainer@… r46897
curl ryandesign@… *1
djbdns nomaintainer@… *2
epic5 nomaintainer@… r46898
ethereal… r46899
fping nomaintainer@… *2
gauche akitada@…,openmaintainer@… *3
hfsrsync nomaintainer@… r46900
imap-uw nomaintainer@… r46901
net-snmp…,openmaintainer@… r46902
oftpd nomaintainer@… r46903
openldap landonf@… r46904
qt3-mac blair@… r46905
sylpheed nomaintainer@… r46906
sylpheed-devel nomaintainer@… r46906
tin nomaintainer@… r46907
tin-devel nomaintainer@… r46907
tin-recent vincent-opdarw@… r44836
wireshark… r46908 (reverted r46911)
xchat2 afb@…,openmaintainer@… r46909
  • *1 = has other variant conflicting +ipv6
  • *2 = custom patches
  • *3 = false positive, has a +no_ipv6 variant

Please give feedback. I will go ahead and change nomaintainer/openmaintainer in a few days.

I committed some ports. I've updated the description above to reflect the current state. I did not touch ports which use patches for ipv6 support.
