fasting of 6 days in Shawal

Q: is there a Sunnah of fasting of 6 days during the month of Shawal ?

A: it has not been proved that we should fast six days in the month of Shawal.  Those who want to fast should do so in the hope that it would be rewarded.

Those, who did not fast for certain days, their intention should be to make up for them, but after the third day of Shawal.
