It's great that you would like to contributing to Quagga.  The lack of
response you are sensing is due to two things: 1) the primary maintainer
Paul isn't avalable for a month or two 2) The majority of Quagga users
are using BGP/OSPF, and some RIP, so you would have to find someone
using ISIS in order to get testing feedback.  

You might have to be patient or look in other places to find someone who
can test your patches beyond compiling them.  It sounds like a useful
addition to ISISd so I would suggest you keep working on it and testing
it in different environments and configurations, and report the results,
so that you might gain attention from other ISIS users and build
confidence that your patch doesn't introduce bugs.  That way it will be
easier for the maintainer(s) to merge it with quagga releases, when they
have time.

Thanks again for your interest in Quagga!
