This is a very useful and well written document.

Jouni Korhonen made a number of comments and suggestions in his OPS-DIR review. None is blocking, but answering them can further improve the document and I know that the editors are already considering them.

I support the comments / questions in Adrian's COMMENT.

Thank you for an informative and readable document.

If you were to have time to provide some additional words about
management (in addition to the brief paragraph in section 8) it would
be enlightening.

- What was the user's experience of performing manual configuration
  where necessary? Is it the same as for v4 or messier?

- What was the user's experience of running diagnostic tools to
  determine configuration and connectivity problems? Are the tools up
  to the same standard as for v4?

Good to see stuff like this.

general:

- A timeline would help readers understand the level of effort, e.g.
if you could give dates for when stuff happened related to a specific
user's home being added, or anything else that gives the right
flavour for the level of effort.

- Some ascii art n/w diagrams would be nice if you've time.

- Some version numbers (esp. for stuff that didn't work) would be good
for someone reading tihs in a few years time or who wants to try
replicate your results

- It'd be good if you added your wget scripts as an appendix or put 'em
at some URL (again so folks can replicate) - 3rd last para of 6.2 seems
to imply that'd be useful (and that matches my own experience too)

- Is the DNS64/NAT64 setup you're recommending not more "wiretap"
friendly than a currently typical IPv4 or dual-stack network where DNS
and NAT are less coupled? Either way, that'd be worth noting I think in
section 9.

specific

- be good to point out that you don't in general need to add new APs
(3.1, 1st para)

- saying it "becomes crucial" that you can find DNS servers doesn't
explain why that's harder which may be worth saying (3.2 1st para)

- s/a year and half/a year and a half/ (s4, 1st para)

- You mention Ercisson and Skype (negatively in the latter case) but are
coy about the mobile OSes (presumably IOS and Android). I'd say do one
or the other.

- s/only couple of times/only a couple of times/

- 5.1 - expand RA on 1st use

- s/result require/results require/ or /result requires/ in 5.4

- which year is "next year" in section 8? s/next year/YYYY/

- s/cleaned from/cleaned of/ IPv4 literals

Reply-To: ietf@ietf.org
Subject: Last Call:  (Experiences from an IPv6-Only Network) to Informational RFC


The IESG has received a request from an individual submitter to consider
the following document:
- 'Experiences from an IPv6-Only Network'
  as an Informational RFC

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2012-01-06. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Abstract


  This document discusses our experiences from moving a small number of
  users to an IPv6-only network, with access to the IPv4-only parts of
  the Internet via a NAT64 device.  The document covers practical
  experiences as well as road blocks and opportunities for this type of
  a network setup.  The document also makes some recommendations about
  where such networks are applicable and what should be taken into
  account in the network design.  The document also discusses further
  work that is needed to make IPv6-only networking applicable in all
  environments.
