Description of problem:
The OSPF command "ip ospf area AREANUMBER", that allows an OSPF interface to be assigned to a *specific* area, is not available (despite being advertised in Quagga's official documentation).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
quagga-0.99.22.4-4.el7.x86_64 (CentOS 7.x as of September 3rd, 2017)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install quagga package from the official repositories.
2. Enable zebra and ospf daemons
3. Launch vtysh, to obtain a Cisco-like CLI
4. Do "conf t", then "interface SOMEINTERFACE"
5. Check "ip ospf" sub commands
There is no "ip ospf area AREANUMBER" command available, limiting configuration options.
"ip ospf area AREANUMBER" command should be available, as documented here
Please update the quagga package to latest features, as advertised.

The Quagga RPM package included in current Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x and CentOS 7.x is VERY old; the solution of the above bug (missing command) seems to be simply to include a newer version.
- Current stable Quagga is 1.2.1 (http://savannah.nongnu.org/forum/forum.php?forum_id=8811)
- Quagga RPM package included in RHEL/CentOS 7.x is quagga-0.99.22.4-4.el7
- Quagga RPM package included in Fedora 26 is quagga-1.2.1-1.fc26
- Quagga package included in Debian (stable) 9.x is quagga-1.1.1
So please release a newer Quagga package in RHEL/CentOS.
