Yes, Quagga ospfd for OSPFv6, bird6 for OSPFv3 - for now, at least. This
is just a matter of not starting Quagga ospf6d, you don't need any
Considering also changing Quagga ospfd for bird, because editing a
config file and SIGHUP-ing the daemon fits much better into our
configuration management system Puppet than the vtysh stuff. But since
Quagga's ospfd work quite well for us, no rush.
Astonishingly enough, BIRD/BIRD6 does not support IP addressing, so
we're using Quagga zebra for that (both IPv4 and IPv6). This also means
that if we were to replace all the Quagga routing protocol daemons with
BIRD/BIRD6, we'd still need to keep Quagga zebra around for this purpose.
