To put it another way.. if you are wanting to work on an IPV6-free
kernel RPM for long term inclusion in the fedora project this may be the
list for you. If you are wanting to know how to compile a kernel on your
system for yourself..  there are lists that are more in-line for that
question. If you are wanting to complain about how the internet would 
have been better if we had just stayed with IPv1.. fedora-loons is 
probably the list for you.

fedora-list for that reason.
