Deploy360 IPv6 Aims To Provide Q&A-Style Forum For IPv6 Discussion

Looking to post a specific IPv6 question and receive an answer? Or looking to see what kinds of questions people are asking about IPv6? If so, the folks at Network Revolution, an IPv6 consultancy based in London, have set up a web forum at where people can ask IPv6 questions and receive answers from others in the community. They’re seeking to make it a member-driven community where people can collectively build up a knowledgebase of information related to IPv6.  While I’ve not yet set up my own free account to join the discussions, it does look like a useful resource and as we approach World IPv6 Launch on June 6 it is great to see more and more resources like this coming online!
