	Several of the production root servers are preparing for=20
	IPv6. Those with announced intentions are:  B, F, H, M.

	There is a persistant testbed operated by some root operators
	that runs over IPv6 and supports IPv6 resources. FRnic is=20
	participating, having provided IPv6 capable nameservers to the
	IPv6 root for the .FR domain.  If you wish to register your IPv6=20
	servers for your .FR zone, you may wish to contact the FRnic to=20
	inquire about their participation and their ability to support
	IPv6 registrations within FR.

% I saw on this site there is both F server and there is now an IPv6 root
% server.
% Is this right or can we say it's only a mirror server with IPv4 ressources
% and not with IPv6 ressources ?
