Thanks for that reminder, so I cannot make use of all these unused IPv6 IPs anyway since I would have as many IPv4 IPs currently.

It is no problem to wait since they are running relays already, but it is just a pitty that all these IPs are of no use. And last time I checked I was unable to get any IPv6 bridge via https://bridges.torproject.org/ (any pluggable transport).

"Uh oh, spaghettios! There currently aren't any bridges available..."

hoping for 0.2.10 in 2017.
