US Federal IPv6 conversion

Under this OMB policy, executive branch agencies in the US federal government were required to be able to pass IPv6 packets as of yesterday. According to this article in Network World, the affected agencies are on target. However, as the article points out, this does not mean that the agencies are using IPv6 in their day-to-day operations, it only means that their networks will support the new protocol. Operational transition to IPv6 remains a future goal.
