net-misc/quagga needs help
It has security bugs opened for a long time:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=408507

Also, current version fails to build, and the same occurs while trying
to bump to the latest version:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=421861

Help with this is needed, otherwise we will probably need to hardmask it
due security bugs (and it not being installable just now)

Thanks for your help

I'd actually just run bird instead.

Did anyone report it upstream?

Not me ... because I wouldn't know which one to care about. The problem
with upstream is that you have what they call master that is not really
stable, then what they call 'Release Engineering' that looks like a
kernel stable branch but they introduce new features there (instead of
master) first.

Then there is the concept that they don't really care about doing new
releases to fix build or run failures because they say that's what
integrators and distributors should be paid to deal with.

I agree with you, I'd rather run bird.

Will probably treeclean it in the next days if nobody is able to bump it
and make it buildable then, as looks like bird can be a good replacement
