I think that the IPv6 support shouldn’t be a question. I have several points for it: 1. All the Gentoo infrastructure is IPv6-able (at least the public faced as I’m aware), so it could create a specific case 2. As you mention NAT ISPs, most of those are providing IPv6 as well (because NAT isn’t cost-less). Also putting the IPv4 rate-limit to a /64 IPv6 will reduce the need for a CAPTCHA. 3. Users don’t necessary have an IPv4 access 4. About a third of the Internet traffic is IPv6, so it’s not an option in my humble opinion. Regards, -- Alarig
