It does make a lot of sense for NANOG (perhaps jointly with RIPE and
other NOGs) to organize monthly IPv6 days with a theme or focus for
each month. If you have a focus, then you can recruit a lot of IPv6
testers to try out certain things on IPv6 day and get a more thorough
test and more feedback

Skip July and August because it takes time to get this organized, and
then start the next one on September the 8th or thereabouts.

For instance, one month could focus on full IPv6 DNS support, but
maybe not right away. A nice easy start would be to deal with IPv6
peering and weird paths that result from tunnels. That is the kind of
thing that would work good with a lot of testers participating and an
application that traces IPv4 and IPv6 paths and measures hop count,
latency, packet loss.

In conjunction with the monthly IPv6 day, NANOG should set up a blog
page or similar to publicly collect incident reports and solutions.
