Facter 3 provides proper IPv6 support.

Effectively facter 2.x has incomplete facts for IPv6 interfaces, netmask6 for instance are missing.

Facter 3 is a complete rewrite, which turns to be much faster.

An upgrade at least to 2.4.6 would fix some bugs.

Comment 2 Gilles Dubreuil 2018-03-28 00:47:09 EDT
Seems like Facter has been left behind. Is there any reason or blocker for moving forward?
