OpenVPN ipv6 payload patch

Would it be possible to include the ipv6 patch that is e.g. related
to on https://github.com/jjo/openvpn-ipv6/downloads

As Ubuntu added this patch since 10.04 "lucid", and IPv6 has been going much more popular these years, I want the official "openvpn" package could accept this patch.

Don't know if this is the correct forum to post this request, please let me know if it should be somewhere else smile

Re: OpenVPN ipv6 payload patch

You're best off posting a feature request on the bugtracker so the maintainer of the package can have a look and decide. You're unlikely to get the correct people's attention through the forums.

Re: OpenVPN ipv6 payload patch

Why would you propose that Arch include it? Why not offer it upstream? This is the sort of garbage that Canonical seems to want to be known for, but never the less, feature requests in the form of patches to upstream software are strongly discouraged here.

@falconindy
refer to https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/ticket/103
the openvpn community has accepted the idea and set milestone to 2.3, while there is a patch since 2.0 and many(see the downloads count on https://github.com/jjo/openvpn-ipv6/downloads) guys are using it, I don't think it a too-bad idea to include it in 2.2 here.
