	Who is working on opsf6d, about what stage is the work in, about when is the new rev coming, and would y'all be interested if I lent a hand with either coding or testing?
	Will the new rev of ospf6d fix stub areas, redistributions, and virtual links?

	I just read from "0.9.22 known issues"  ( http://savannah.nongnu.org/forum/forum.php?forum_id=7501 ) :

* ospf6d:
  - ospf6d is in "alpha/experimental" state.

  - there are at least 2 network-triggerable assert failures that will cause the daemon to exit. Do not use ospf6d on untrusted networks and test your configuration in a testbed.

  -  there is a known lockup condition where ospf6d will stop doing any kind of processing without exiting.

  - the neighbor state machine can get stuck on links involving 3 or more OSPFv3 speakers, needing an ospf6d restart to resume operation.

  - area support is broken/nonexistent
