I also noticed the error, the reason why I created the bug is that I want to know how can restraint start with ipv6 disabled
I wasn't discounting the bug, just providing more info about when it's seen.
As we QE are required to run tests with ipv6 disabled. is there any work around before the next release is ready?
if not, when will the next release become ready? we are in snapshot 4 of RHEL8, it's better to get it ready before
I will try to answer your questions.
1. As far as I know, due to the implementation of Restraint, it is not possible to make a workaround for the current situation (0.1.36)
2. I'm starting preparation for the new release of Restraint today. Hopefully, we will be able to ship it today/next week when everything will be settled after the outage.

That's great, so we can use the new release in rhel8 RC testing.
please update here after the new release is shipped, thanks
