Hi Shak,

Yes is an IPv6-only mirror. I made it clear
during the mirror submission about 2 years ago and was told it was fine.

However, we later found out that Mirmon [0] (the software redirecting
to mirrors used by The Document Foundation) doesn't handle IPv6-only
mirrors nicely. In fact, Mirmon looks unmaintained as the last release
was in 2016 [1].

If memory serves, I think the TDF team was looking to migrate to
Mirrorbits [2] at the time but I don't know what's the status on that.

I agree that having failing downloads is a bad experience and wouldn't
mind having my mirror disabled until IPv6-only mirrors are properly
supported. I see that my mirror is flagged as "site not found" on but somehow Mirmon
still thinks it's fine to use it...

This is the default mirror being returned to me by My client does not understand the
alternate locations provided in the metalink headers, so the download
just fails.
