Subject: [arin-discuss] Overwhelmed with RFC's and IPv6

Hi everyone,

For some reason, I'm having a difficult time grasping the full benefit of a
couple of RFC's. I don't know where else to request better understanding, so
I thought I'd ask here.

With a good grasp on binary/dec/hexa conversion, and even though both RFCs
are very well written and documented, I can't quite pull together how the
netmask factor works relevant to RFC 1219 and RFC 3531.

Could someone here either recommend a better venue for me to discuss these
RFCs (in regard to a final decision on how to initially decide on an IPv6
layout), or provide real-world examples of this type of layout, and how it
has/will provide them with future growth, whether it be in
IPv4 or IPv6 context?

Intimidation is the major factor in how to pre-plan our IPv6 deployment. 
To be honest, the more I focus on IPv6, the more I notice mistakes in our
IPv4 deployment.

Thanks and regards,
