Re: IPv6 RA route add/removal does not trigger dispatch action

When I bring up the interface, I see the `pre-up`, `up`, and `dhcp6-
change` actions get triggered. However, when new routes are added or
removed from the router advertisement,  NetworkManager adds/removes
the the corresponding  addresses, but does not trigger a dispatch

Is the lack of a dispatch event expected and/or desired behavior?
Should an action get triggered?

Running Fedora 28 with NetworkManager-1.10.12.


I think it's a missing feature.

However, it also seems problematic, because a lot of router
advertisements are received. Running the dispatcher scripts each time,
sounds expensive. But they could be in a separate directory, and NM
would only spawn the dispatcher if there are any scripts there. Like
already done for pre-up and pre-down.
