RE: v6 only networks broken?

Does nm currently support both stateful and stateless ipv6 address auto
configurations? Mentioned below is that the ipv6 infratructure is
already done for nm, I wonder what is missing in ipv6 implementation
with nm 0.7 RC2 release? I am mostly interested in wired networks.

What is the expected time frame for this full ipv6 feature delivery?

Correct; NM won't (yet) try to get IPv6 addresses, though we have some
infrastructure to handle IPv6 via LL, router advertisements, and DHCP
+/- information only mode, it's not all there.  Full IPv6 support will
be added in the near future and is a major target for post 0.7

NM should not stomp on IPv6 LL addresses that get assigned to the
interface however.  If it does, it's a bug.
