Dear Maintainer,

The quagga-core package in Ascii does not provide a SysV init script and several related files.  As far as I can tell, at least the following files are missing:


According to the following bug report, SysVinit support was removed from quagga-core in Debian:

Bug 849011 references 4 other Debian bugs as the reason for removing the init scripts.  Below is a summary of the current status of each:

This was filed against quagga  Patches were included, no confirmation whether or not they fixed the issue.  However, comment #4 in Ubuntu bug 405195 reports that this is fixed in Ubuntu 14.04, and the same fix appears to be in the init script on Devuan Jessie.

The initial bug report included a patch to add pimd to the daemons list.  I have not tested the patch, but the submitter claims it fixes the issue.  The patch looks very simple, so it seems likely that it works.

This appears to only apply to systemd, so it should not pose any issues for Devuan systems.

This an enhancement request with a severity of "wishlist".

Please let me know if there is any additional information I can provide that would be helpful.
