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

Thomas Haller via networkmanager-list <networkmanager-list gnome org>

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.

I wouldn't trigger an event on every RA.  That's just absurd.

HOWEVER, I do feel it should trigger an event if the RA causes a local
modification of state (e.g. route add/remote, etc).
