The IPv6 Day: Bye 6Bone. Hi, IPv6 !

Tue Jun 6 16:31:53 CEST 2006

No, I don't mean stable in the sense of "multiple years", but in the sense
that the operation of the network is warranted, which was one of the main
reasons for 6Bone to die, because its instability with many people not
taking care of the daily operation of their networks.

We have plans to renumber our network to a production service once the
experiments are over and keep offering most of the non-for-profit services
that use today that prefix. That means it will be still a stable service (so
not going to go away such as 6Bone in this sense).
