     Type:  Merge Request  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal         |  Milestone:  Bro2.1
Component:  Bro            |    Version:  git/master
 Keywords:  ipv6           |
 This branch is in `bro`, `broccoli`, and `broctl` repos and adds support
 for Bro/Broccoli to talk to Bro peers over IPv6 (including non-global
 scopes like link-local that can require zone identifiers for
 disambiguation, see RFC 4007) and for BroControl to manage cluster nodes
 with IPv6 addresses.

 I also added some util functions to BroControl to help with consistent
 formatting of IP addresses depending on context (i.e. when to add a
 zone_id to an IPv6 address, and when encase them in square brackets,
 etc.).  Included in that is the networks.cfg doesn't need the bracketed
 syntax for IPv6 prefixes, they get added when they have to be embedded in
 the auto-generated Bro script (takes care of #269).
