If by "work in progress" you're referring to my IPv6 patches, the progress
is pretty much stalled due to lack of response from you or Marcel for a couple of months
now. Are you planning to review and/or push the patches or not? The next time I will send
a patch, it will be to remove the work item from the TODO list due to lack of interest
I would not describe it as a lack of interest. There were simply higher
priority items and I wanted to discuss this with Samuel first anyway. I
have reworked your IPv6 patches and the API 'slightly' and just now
waiting on Marcel to cut a new release to push them.

Just FYI, PPP is a valid PDP context type, where the PPP protocol terminates on the
network side instead of in the modem. AFAIK, this configuration is not widely supported by
cellular operators, though.
Fair enough, that makes sense now that you mention it.
