Funny you should say this;

This morning, the US Federal Government released its final rule for 
Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) relating to IPv6.

It isn't a push down to everyone, but it is a push down to all the 
vendors of the Federal Government.

I haven't read the whole thing yet, I can only digest so much 
government-speak in a singe dose.  I'm going to definitely have to read 
this in several different sittings to prevent indigestion, lapsing into 
unconsciousness, or permanent brain damage.  :-)

Read at you own risk. :-()
