[New-bugs-announce] [issue24357] www.python.org lost IPv6 connectivity

Paul Marks report at bugs.python.org
Tue Jun 2 02:59:40 CEST 2015

New submission from Paul Marks:

Python's web servers were formerly reachable from IPv6 clients, as evidenced by this example code for socket.getaddrinfo():


But today, www.python.org is IPv4-only:

>>> import socket
>>> socket.getaddrinfo("www.python.org", 80, proto=socket.IPPROTO_TCP)
[(<AddressFamily.AF_INET: 2>, <SocketType.SOCK_STREAM: 1>, 6, '', ('', 80))]

Please either restore IPv6 connectivity to www.python.org, or accept the shame and defeat of pointing the documentation to someone else's domain.
