Are we getting more MIPSR1 K26 firmwares or they are EOL?

    With world ipv6 launch, now there are more serious reasons to switch to kernel 2.6. I have no anxiety of surfing ipv6 only sites but I think that is important that our IPSs listen interest and feedback on ipv6 as soon as possible.

    As far as I know:
    - ipv6 is properly enabled only on K26 tomato builds;
    - Toastman and Teaman continuously support MIPSR1 routers with K24 builds;
    - Toastman K26 builds exist but are slightly outdated.

    I can't say anything for Victek or Shibby (with the latter being too polish for my tastes).

    Consider I have a good-old WRT54Gv2 and an Asus WL500GP v2 (the latter quite recent) and that ipv6 support is not perfect yet (with some bugs discovered recently) I'd like to ask to devs if there's still hope to see more updated K26 firmwares for MIPSR1 routers or I should consider them End-of-life for proper ipv6 support.

    I personally won't make more K26 builds for MIPSR1 routers because they have proven to be slow and unreliable, the builds are usually bigger and have problems fitting. K24 builds are OK but they don't properly support ipv6. It's true that ipv6 development in general has somewhat stalled since the departure of Teddy Bear and Wes Campaigne from the TomatoUSB site.

    Fair enough, I'm already looking for a replacement for the WRT54G. Still, do you think it would be possible to you to generate some *unsupported* MIPSR1 K26 builds when a proper fix for the recent ipv6 problems is released? The Asus WL500GPv2 has enough horse power and flash space to handle K26. Or you think that recent developments made impossible to support K26 on MIPSR1?

    Thanks for your efforts.
