#17011 new defect

chutney doesn't verify using IPv6 addresses

Description

Even when chutney is using IPv6 exits, it doesn't give clients an IPv6 address to connect to when verifying.

When chutney is using IPv6 bridges, I don't know if it gives their IPv6 address to bridge clients.

This is a significant coverage gap that I think is easily fixed by slight modifications to the chutney templating and verification code.

To clarify, this most likely means that:

  • the bridges are listening on IPv6, but the bridge clients are connective over IPv4
  • the exits are willing to connect via IPv6, but never get an IPv6 request (but see #16971, an exit on a network where there is no IPv6 DNS may refuse IPv6 requests)

If we are trying to force IPv6-only exit connections, we need to stop the authorities being exits in #17090.

Remove myself as chutney ticket owner. Default owners are trouble.
