Not speaking about this particular dspam case (which I'm not familiar
with), nor about Quanah in particular, but generally I think it is
good that a packager/reseller/company comes upstream with suggestions
or problem reports which could let everyone benefit, instead of
applying a fix/improvement in his own walled garden, eventually
leading to incompatibilities or forks. Sounds like requesting
support for IPv6 in y2012 falls under that category, where the
upstream should be persuaded to implement it.
