Hi Ask,

This thread died off, but left some unanswered questions:

1) Which specific countries do in your estimation have a too sparse
IPv6 coverage for AAAAs to be returned for their respective country

2) Would it be possible to enable AAAAs for the zones of all the other
countries (that do have sufficient IPv6 coverage)?

3) Would it be possible to enable AAAAs for all the zones that are not
country-specific? (Assuming these do have sufficient IPv6 coverage.)

I would very much like to see the NTP Pool become more IPv6 enabled
than it currently is, and would therefore appreciate any pointers to
what specifically needs to be done in order to make that happen - maybe
I will be able to help.
