Thanks everyone. What I mean by 'fully supported' is just as the
subject says, the FreeIPA piece.
To clarify a bit further I'll break this down into two parts:
1) FreeIPA Core Project: Let's assume for the sake of this discussion
that the OS, Hardware and what not fully supports IPv6. So in other
words, anything outside the realm of what you control or code within the
FreeIPA project is out of scope of this question.
2) Integration: FreeIPA / SSSD will integrate with a host of
technologies including SSSD, 389 Directory Server etc. If any of those
components aren't ready and impact FreeIPA components, I would be
interested to know.
+ Subject change to include SSSD folks. Remembered just now meant to
ask the SSSD community as well. So therefore a third question as well:
3) SSSD Core Project: Same as question 1 above but for SSSD.
