The legacy software might have issues with IPv6 so I doubt this will happen before Warehouse replaces Cheeseshop as the new PyPI.

As a follow-up, Fastly now provides an option to enable IPv6 (but this is
not enabled by default).

See: https://github.com/pypa/pypi-legacy/issues/90#issuecomment-231240046

Does pypi plan to participate in this program?  It would be nice!

Thanks,
Baptiste

Iím pretty sure that PyPI will get IPv6 support as soon as Fastly supports it and not any sooner. I know theyíre working on making it happen but I donít think they have a public timeline for it yet.

Hi,
 
pypi.python.org is currently not reachable over IPv6.
 
I know this issue was brought up before [1,2]. This is a real issue for
us, because our backend servers are IPv6-only (clients never need to talk
to backend servers, they go through IPv4-enabled HTTP frontends).
 
So, deploying packages from pypi on the IPv6-only servers is currently a
pain. What is the roadmap to add IPv6 support? It seems that Fastly has
already deployed IPv6 [3].
 
Thanks,
Baptiste
