There is a long-standing problem that mirrorbrain on does not do reasonable redirection when a user comes by with an ipv6 address...

In my case for example, mirrorbrain claim I'm coming from an unknown country. It's a small country, ok, but by far not unknown (Switzerland)

So far we know that the geoip database we know is capable of assigning my IP appropriately.

This would solve a long-standing issue, that is being reported over and over (and as time progresses, more frequently, as IPv6 becomes more widespread)

A sample bug report would be or also

      Turns out : the biggest part of it could be solved even before hackweek - simply because I started studying about the requirements to have a test-system available during hackweek - since then, can identify the user's location and redirect the user appropriately (see

      The hackweek itself I used to further improve on mirrorbrain with regards to ipv6 handling. There have been quite some assumptions that a client, and also server, would basically have v4 available. For servers, there was an option to be v6 only.

      I collected my notes during hackweek in
