The IPv6 migration of 'syslogd' is complete as soon as
the draft [1] produces a final commit. The intended tasks
have been reached!

On the other hand I have today achieved a migration of 'ftpd'
that implements EPRT and EPSV for IPv4 as well as IPv6. At the
moment it runs on OpenBSD and responds well to the native FTP
client as delivered by OpenBSD. The question is whether we want
to incorporate also this code into the first possible release.

The patch sets, presently three in number, need beautyfication
and some optimisation, as well as implementation of the exceptional
corner cases in EPSV, but the major mechanisms are clearly proven.

If you all contribute to the updated autoconf, also forced upon
us by recent changes in GNU Lib, certifying that GNU/kFreeBSD
can be targeted and that the recent breakage for OpenBSD be fixed,
then I will care for 'ftpd'. Ideally we should make an attempt to
get autoconf fit for OpenSolaris at the same time, fit enough to
compile 'libinetutils' if nothing else. My NexentaCore system
is now and then pointing me to portability issues.
