Sorry for all the delays in getting the e.f.f.3.ip6.arpa service going. The 
initial problem was getting agreement to get RFC 3681 published (which just 
happened this January) and now it is getting the server details worked out, 
and then getting IANA to take them as official (per the RFC 3681).

Hexago's engineering team (who supports the 6bone web site service as well 
as the freenet6 tunnelling service) are finalizing the details of which 
servers, etc., at this time and will announce what's going to happen
