Conclusion of IP Version 6 (ipv6) 

The IP Version 6 Working Group (ipv6) in the Internet Area has

The IESG contact persons are Jari Arkko and Mark Townsley.


A new Working Group, 6MAN, has been created to deal
with maintenance issues arising in IPv6 specifications.
The IPv6 WG is closed. This is an important milestone
for IPv6, marking the official closing of the IPv6
development effort.

The ADs would like to thank everyone -- chairs, authors,
editors, contributors -- who has been involved in the effort
over the years. The IPv6 working group and its predecessor,
IPNGWG, produced 79 RFCs (including 5 in the RFC queue).

Issues relating to IPv6 should in the future be taken up in
6MAN if they relate to problems discovered during
implementation or deployment; V6OPS if they relate to
operational issues; BOF proposals, individual submissions
etc. for new functionality.

The mailing list of the IPv6 WG stays alive; the list will
still be used by the 6MAN WG in order to avoid people
having to resubscribe and/or adjust their mail filters.
