self hosted cloud with docker: ipv6 disabled by default, how to enable?

The self hosted cloud by default creates networks that have IPv6 disabled. However, for the majority of tests, we need native IPv6 on at least the loopback interface. Is there a way to enable that? I haven't found anything with google or manually searching the docs.
The way to enable it would be to just enable it - or at least not disable it - when creating the docker networks with the AppVeyor host agent (it does that automatically).

Kind regards

    Hi Noel,

    AppVeyor uses docker network create command for creating ad-hoc NAT networks. I see it has --ipv6 option ("Enable IPv6 networking") which might be what we need.

    We are going to implement that via environment variables and publish an updated host agent.

    OK, we've published an updated Host Agent:

    To enable IPv6 on created Docker network define the following environment (either in appveyor.yml or on UI) for your project: docker_ipv6: true

    Let me know how it worked.
