Thanks a lot for your explanation.
It was a kind of misunderstanding the subject (Please enable IPv6 on
your relay!) and also the instructions, what was written on the wiki
In other words, for non-exit relays, there is no need to enable IPv6 at
this time, only if you use it as a bridge and/or as an IPv6-only client.
