so I was looking at NextCloud and they have a installation script
and the first actual lines:
# Prefer IPv4
sed -i "s|#precedence ::ffff:0:0/96 100|precedence ::ffff:0:0/96 100|g" /etc/gai.conf
how to get me annoyed with your software in 30s right there
no good reason, in 2016 apparently
I'm about to fork this, remove that bit and submit a pull request
okay so the maintainer tells me there is a second script that changes the value back to preferring IPv6
I'm still not sure /why/ the script needs to set that preference, even temporarily, so I asked
@packetcat ayyy 🎉🎉 I've had my own nextcloud troubles recently lmao
@packetcat My opinion of Nextcloud was already pretty low. This thread is lowering it even more.
@packetcat nobody actually knows how to code
