This is arguably Debian's fault for not doing like the rest of the world, and putting ipv4 addresses first, or maybe it's libsoup's fault for not trying all addresses it is given. Meanwhile, we may want to have most tests passing with an apache configuration fix.

This helps us pass most of the tests that use 'localhost' instead of the IP address for requests. I say most because I found two tests that still hit a cross-domain failure, and will still need investigation, but this will improve the life of those who cannot change their network configuration to remove ipv6 support, or reorder the resolution results.

Thanks! Landed as r55662.
Comment 5 Gustavo Noronha (kov) 2010-03-08 07:07:52 PST
Reverted r55662 for reason:

Need to be coordinated with bots setup

Committed r55663: <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/55663>

I didn't anticipate the change would fail to boot apache when the interface isn't there - we need to either coordinate the landing of the patch with changes to the bot, or enhance the patch to only bind ipv6 interfaces when they're there.

This should have been fixed by <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/132678>.
