I would like to remove the dhcpv6 package from Fedora as the current dhcp
package is now providing DHCPv6 protocol support for both the client,
server,
and relay.  ISC has finally surpassed what the dhcpv6 package was providing
and, frankly, I have no desire to continue working on the dhcpv6 at this
point.

Does anyone care?  If not, I will be marking it as a dead.package per our
package removal procedure.  The dhclient package will grow the necessary
Provides/Obsoletes for the former dhcpv6-client package and the dhcp
package
will grow the necessary Provides/Obsoletes for the former dhcpv6 package.

On a related note, I'd been meaning to inquire about and/or suggest ways to get
ISC's dhcpd working for both IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously.  Do you have one way
or another of doing this yet?  That was the only thing that had me using dhcp6s
for a short time.

Unfortunately, no.  Like dhclient, dhcpd can only operate as a DHCP (protocol)
or DHCPv6 (protocol) server.  It can't operate as both at the same time.  To
use both with dhcpd, just run two instances.  This is the recommendation from
ISC at the moment.  The dhcpd architecture needs a lot of changes before both
protocols can be supported by a single daemon.
