Subject: netbase: Default value of net.ipv6.bindv6only sholud revert to 0

Package: netbase
Version: 4.40
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***

Default value of net.ipv6.bindv6only should revert to 0.


1. RFC 3493 explicitly allows applications to use AF_INET6 socket
to receive IPv4 connection.

2. If some applications want to restrict their use of an AF_INET6
socket to IPv6 communications only, they can use IPV6_V6ONLY.
It is effective even if net.ipv6.bindv6only is 0.
(In addition, RFC 3493 explicitly says IPV6_V6ONLY is turned off
(0) by default.)

3. Default value of net.ipv6.bindv6only is 0 in Linux kernel and
other Linux distributions.  We should never introduce such
meaningless incompatibility.


If an application does not work with net.ipv6.bindv6only = 1, it
does not mean that program is broken.

But if an application does not work with net.ipv6.bindv6only = 0,
it's broken as Linux application.

This has already been discussed on debian-devel and I do not see any new
arguments here.
