[request]: host a probe for v6 measurements

We've seen 3 or 4 recent presentations of some new measurement project
that requires deploying yet another set of dedicated probes. While I'm
generally supportive of measurement attempts, I'll ask the same question
that was asked then:

Why not use RIPE Atlas?

>Dear NANOG,
>We are currently looking for volunteers in US with native IPv6 lines
>to help us in our v6 measurement research.
><——------ Background
>We are interested in measuring IPv6 performance from home. As part
>of the LEONE project [1], we have developed measurement tests that
>compare performance over IPv4 and IPv6 to: a) Dual-stacked websites
>and b) YouTube content delivery network (in collaboration with Aalto
>University). The tests comes bundled with a LEONE SamKnows probe.
>[1] http://www.leone-project.eu
>We currently have ~25 Vantage points (VP). Each VP runs a Leone
>SamKnows probe. The google map [2] shows where these probes are
>deployed. As you can see the VP sample is too small (nothing in
>North America)
>[2] http://goo.gl/TL4woP
><——------ Request:
>If you receive native IPv6 at home (or know someone who does), it
>would be great if you can host a LEONE SamKnows probe for us. The
>probe will run standard SamKnows tests [3] and our IPv6 tests.
>[3] https://www.samknows.com/tests-and-metrics
>We prefer measuring from home networks, but are also open to
>deploying probes within research/academic networks, business
>lines, or operators labs.
><-------- Action:
>Let me know if you’re interested, and I can share details on how to
>get the probe to you. We only have limited number of LEONE SamKnows
>probes. We will process the requests on first come first serve basis.
><-------- Research Impact.
