Description

Now that RFC 6874 has matured and is a proposed standard, I'd like to reinstate the idea of implementing the support for IPv6 zone identifiers, e.g. for the proxy_pass directive. This would allow using IPv6 link-local upstreams.
In https://trac.nginx.org/nginx/ticket/623 this was rejected because the RFC was too young. Now as there are only for rejected errata and no movement for a while, I suggest revisiting this decision.

I would like to see this revisited as well.
