Would it be possible to include the ipv6 patch that is e.g. related to on https://github.com/jjo/openvpn-ipv6/downloads
As Ubuntu added this patch since 10.04 "lucid", and IPv6 has been going much more popular these years, I want the official "openvpn" package could accept this patch too.
This task depends upon

What does openvpn upstream think about this? Did you try contacting them?
Comment by Felix Yan (felixonmars) - Monday, 15 October 2012, 10:55 GMT
They are including this patch in 2.3 series but it has been long before a stable version of 2.3.

Wait, so you're telling me that current stable OpenVPN versions do not support ipv6 transports? I didn't realize that. However, this requires thorough review.

@Thomas
Yes I can assume this:

$ openvpn --dev tun --proto udp6
Options error: Bad protocol: 'udp6'. Allowed protocols with --proto option: [ud
p] [tcp-server] [tcp-client] [tcp]

$ openvpn --dev tun --proto udp --remote 2001:470:20::2

And same command to use udp6 with AUR/openvpn-dev 2.3_beta1:

I am still shocked by this, but yes, we need to fix it.
