Re: Kernel issues

http://www.netfilter.org/projects/iptables/files/changes-iptables-1.3.5.txt states that in 1.3.4 the state and conntrack modules for ipv6 were enabled.

seems to suggest that the kernel now has it enabled.

Is there any reason why Fedora Rawhide still does not have iptables
conntracking and state matching for ipv6?
