I've been looking at this Debian bug:

and this link in particular:

Can anybody comment on the current status of DDNS for DHCPv6?

In particular,

- does the dhclient in Linux distributions "just work" for DDNS?  Does
it need some config tweak?  Or does it need code changes?  Debian has v4.2.2

- does the dhcpd server support this completely?  Is there a sample config?

- can anybody comment on any alternative permutations (e.g. using the
Windows or Mac OS X client against the dhcpd on Linux)?

- does the dhcpd have to run on the same box as the radvd / default
gateway or are there any other aspects of IPv6 DHCP/DDNS that are unlike
