I don't. I am able to reach the Ubuntu package mirrors and all of my resources via IPv6.

Amen! At SouthEast LinuxFest 2010 there was a presentation called "IPv6: No Longer Optional". In June 2012 we had the World IPv6 Launch. Snapcraft would not come along for another three years. IPv6 should have been baked in to the initial design.

Requiring every customer to maintain their own workaround to access the resources of a supposedly forward-looking technology company borders on insulting.

So while I appreciate that it is now "on the radar", I have little sympathy for the lack of forethought.
