          Priority: normal
            Bug ID: 4716
                CC: mercurial-devel at selenic.com
          Assignee: bugzilla at selenic.com
           Summary: no ipv6 PTR record for bz.selenic.com (?)
          Severity: bug
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Linux
          Reporter: av6 at dwimlabs.net
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: default branch
         Component: website
           Product: Mercurial

When bugzilla tried to email me using ipv6, email bounced:

NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from unknown[2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:feae:7be1]: 550 5.7.1
Client host rejected: cannot find your reverse hostname,
[2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:feae:7be1]; from=<mercurial-bugs at selenic.com>
to=<av6 at dwimlabs.net> proto=ESMTP helo=<bz.selenic.com>

Indeed, it doesn't resolve to anything:

$ dig @ -x 2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:feae:7be1

; <<>> DiG 9.9.5-9-Debian <<>> @ -x 2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:feae:7be1

Now, the client checks on my end could be too strict, but I still don't think
it's unreasonable to expect a good mailer to have a valid PTR record.
