Información actualizada sobre IPv6

Hola a todos,

El 6 de junio de 2012 fue el lanzamiento de IPv6 ( El objetivo de este evento mundial es trasladar más ISPs, fabricantes de equipos y servicios web la adopción permanentemente de IPv6.

Estuvimos planeando hacer pruebas limitadas de IPv6 durante el Berlin Hackathon 2012 (2 y 3 de junio). Siempre que el número de problemas fueran manejables, podremos habilitar IPv6 el día fijado, y mantenerlo activado.

MediaWiki has been used with IPv6 by third party wikis for some time. Wikimedia uses a set of additional features (GlobalBlocking, CheckUser, etc.) which weren't fully IPv6-ready until recently. In addition, we're working to ensure that all of Wikimedia's various services (mailing lists, blogs, etc.) are IPv6-ready.

¿Como será el impacto para el usuario?

At least in the June 2-3, 2012 time window, you may see a small number of edits from IPv6 addresses, which are in the form "2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334". See w:IPv6 address.

These addresses should behave as any other IP address would: You can leave messages on their talk pages; you can track their contributions; you can block them. CIDR notation is supported for rangeblocks.

An important note about blocking: A single user may have access to a much larger number of addresses than in the IPv4 model. This means that range blocks (e.g. address with "/64") have to be applied in more cases to prevent abuse by more sophisticated users.

In the mid term, user scripts and tools that use simple regular expressions to match IPv4 addresses will need to be adapted for IPv6 support to behave correctly. We suspect that IPv6 usage is going to be very low initially, meaning that abuse should be manageable, and we will assist in the monitoring of the situation.

We've set up a test wiki where you can see IPv6 IP addresses. This works by assigning you a fake IPv6 address the moment you visit the wiki, and allows you to see the behavior of various tools with the new address format:

The best way to report issues is to register them in Bugzilla and to ensure that they are marked as blockers for the IPv6 tracking bug:

Vamos a publicar las actualizaciones en wikitech-l y en otros lugares según corresponda.

Gracias a todos, Erik
