ipcalculator doesn't accept IPv6 addresses
Last modified: 2016-03-29 07:05:14 EDT
Description of problem:
ipcalculator doesn't accept IPv6 addresses. Given that IPv6 is already there, having tools to manipulate IP addresses without IPv6 support is an issue.
$ ipcalculator ::1
INVALID ADDRESS: ::1
Information about the IPv6 address.
The fedora 23 ipcalc utility most likely deprecates that tool as it supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
$ ./ipcalc ::1
Full Address: 0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001
Address space: Loopback Address

I'm fine with deprecating ipcalculator. I haven't used it in ages and mostly maintain the package out of intertia.
Ok, let's schedule that for f24 then. I'll add an obsoletes: ipcalculator in ipalc at rawhide.
Obsoletes: ipcalculator < 0.41-20
Please make sure that there is no update (e.g., by deprecating the package), or let me know of the version number if that changes.
I'm reopening as it is not yet retired in rawhide. Please close the bug once that package is retired in rawhide.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
