I would also welcome any inputs on where improvements are needed in 
order to make the pool completely IPv6-ready. The current situation 
where 2.pool.ntp.org returns IPv6 addresses was a good step four years 
ago. However with respect to the growth of the IPv6 adoption rate, IPv6 
support is IMO already mandatory for any large-scale internet service. 
The longer we wait, the less predictible the transition process will be. 
I'm very interested if I can be of any help.
