Due to the serious problems[1] with ospfd in Quagga >0.99.17 we've
decided at Westermo to downgrade to 0.99.17 for our upcoming
WeOS[2] 4.9.0 release.

Contrary to earlier releases of WeOS I've decided to personally steal
some corporate time to communicating our efforts and publicizing our
patches at GitHub[3].


So far I've setup the repository, created a security/0.99.17 branch, with
patches from the official security/0.99.20 tree, and added the Westermo
patches (including Stephen Hemminger's Zebra route manager patch! :)
to a westermo/0.99.17 tree.

Before our own WeOS release I hope to add CVE fixes from Debian[4],
at the very least CVE-2011-3325 and CVE-2011-3326, i.e., DSA-2316-1
see[5] for more details.

Maybe someone else is interested in this effort. Iirc Joakim Tjernlund
also use 0.99.17 as a baseline for Transmode ...
