Subject: ekiga lacks ipv6 support
Date: Fri, 23 Jun 2006 02:08:15 +0200
Package: ekiga
Version: 2.0.2-1
Severity: wishlist

ekiga doesn't listen on ipv6 ip addresses for incoming connections. i 
checked ekiga's configuration dialogs if there's a switch which enables
ipv6 support and also looked for hidden settings by the gconf-editor, 
but i wasn't able to find any switch to enable ipv6 support.

in contrast, gnomemeeting is listening on ipv6 addresses by default.

maybe ipv6 support is disabled at compile time?

nope, this is still on the TODO upstream. Newer pwlib version should
have support, yet this is untested and not yet implemented in neither
the UI of Ekiga nor in the backend calls. It's however requested already
and will eventually be added with one of the next releases.

Subject: Lack of IPv6 support from ekiga is a regression from gnomemeeting removal of the archive
Date: Sun, 4 Mar 2007 22:39:55 +0100
severity 375056 serious
thanks

Hi,

I have raised the severity of this bug as the removal of gnomemeeting
from the archive
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=413280) leaves
gnomemeeting users over IPv6¹ without any upgrade path.

Using ekiga as a replacement to gnomemeeting is a regression with
respect to IPv6 therefore I have raised the severity to serious as
IPv6 is a release goal
(http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2006/05/msg00015.html).
Feel free to downgrade the severity if you do not find it appropriate.

Best regards,
Frédéric Lehobey
