One particular concern, which isn't really much different from IPv4. And in something like 90% of browser configurations, you're already giving out a semi-static unique string with every request anyway. (see https://panopticlick.eff.org/) The bigger concern for WMF is the possibility for increased privacy. > ps. We all know that everyone needs to switch to IPv6 eventually. Unless IPv7 or IPv8 comes out first. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l
