 Replying to [ticket:33569 irl]:
 > Please point check.torproject.org at check-01.torproject.org. It should
 *only* have an A record. This is important! People will be upset if they
 are visiting check.torproject.org via IPv6 exits and are being told
 they're not using Tor.

 done, in:

 apart from the auto-generated records from LDAP (A and AAA records for
 chiwui.torproject.org), I have:

 chiwui2                 IN      A
 chiwui4                 IN      A
 exitlist                IN      NS      chiwui4

 sounds good?
