We partially do already. Some easy things to do:
0) read the FAQ,
http://wiki.noreply.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#IPv6. The key
sentence being "Full IPv6 support is definitely on our "someday" list;
it will come along faster if somebody who wants it does some of the work. "
1) search the Changelog for ipv6:
Tor 0.2.1.5-alpha moves us closer to handling IPv6 destinations, puts
- Generate and accept IPv6 addresses in many protocol elements.
- Make resolver code handle nameservers located at ipv6 addresses.
- Try to fix Win32 compilation again: improve checking for IPv6 types.
- Merge in some (as-yet-unused) IPv6 address manipulation code.
- Detect and reject DNS replies containing IPv4 or IPv6 records with
- Fix as-yet-unused reverse IPv6 lookup code so it sends nybbles
and ipv6 support. One day Tor will make use of it.
- Correctly detect ipv6 DNS capability on OpenBSD.
useless IPv6 DNS resolves.
2) search the codebase for ipv6 yields a number of hits.
3) searching the proposals, yields "117-ipv6-exits.txt"
4) search google for "tor ipv6" yields more hits
