If one knew Quanah, they might realize he frequently and often contributes 
code back to projects*, as well as donating time to be the release engineer 
for the OpenLDAP project, as well, of course, of doing his day job.

I first asked about DSPAM IPv6 support on 7/18/2011.  I next asked about it 
on 4/23/2012.  I hardly think asking if support has been implemented for a 
significant feature only twice in the span of about a year is being 
particularly pushy.  Taking on IPv6 support for DSPAM, when I (at least at 
the time) had zero capability to do IPv6 in-house did not seem particularly 
wise to me.
