Description (last modified by teor)

The OutboundBindAddress affects what IPv4 address outgoing DNS requests bind to.

This should be extended to IPv6 addresses using the new (unreleased as of now) OutboundBindAddress [IPv6] option.

Dropping parent relationship. This is ipv6-related , but not a prereq for making IPv6 exits work.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.

I'm not sure if OutboundBindAddress IPv4 works for DNS requests in recent tor versions.
