I've just returned from over a month of holiday, which I took at the
conclusion of my involvement in a large project, so I'm ready to get
back to some coding. There are outstanding issues with (as described in
the web page + a few more)
- fetch branch up to date with 2.5
- SNMP over IPv6 transport
- IPv6 address representation in SNMP / ASN.1
- linux-netfilter interactions (need to understand this first,
particularly for netfilter v6)
- RFC 2428 EPRT might be needed for IPv6 ftp servers that don't support EPSV
- Consideration of the coding methodology for conversion using #ifdef'ed
macros in order to allow continued compilation on older hosts without
IPv6 support
- support for the (now deprecated but useful for debugging)
http://[2002::1]/ URL notation

Finally, *extensive* testing, particularly of some of the less-core
functions of squid, such as cache digests etc. is required to confirm
validity of the changes.
