Description of problem:
The quota package doesn't include the quota_nld daemon, but for some reason it does include the man page for it. I assume that this is a case of it being accidentally forgotten, so please ensure this is included in the package.
Also it would be nice if we had an init script for it too.

Thanks for report, I'll change version to rawhide and fix there in next build after freeze. I do not plan to add this daemon for F-11 at the moment.
Built for F-13 target in koji - https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=134187 ... could you please give it a try? However - no initscript for rpc.rquotad and quota_nld at the moment. Any specific wishes or just basic initscript would be enough?
I think quota_nld should start after dbus (since I think the dbus feature is a good one). I don't think it needs to be anything but the most basic script really.
I've still to do some work on rpc.quotad since I have a set of patches here to implement the XFS style quota interface for GFS2 and once they are upstream the next job is to review the userland support and see how many of the standard tools will work with that interface.
I did look at the quota tools a few days ago and saw that there are a lot of "if it uses the XFS interface, it must be XFS" assumptions in the code so it will take me a little while to go though all that I think. That is a separate issue to this one though.
The link in comment #4 seems to be broken atm:
An error occurred during a connection to koji.fedoraproject.org.
SSL peer was unable to negotiate an acceptable set of security parameters.
(Error code: ssl_error_handshake_failure_alert)
Try just http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=134187 ... should work even without koji certificate...
Ok, I've grabbed the SRPM and rebuilt in on F-11 as I don't have a rawhide box here atm. It looks good to me. Thanks for fixing that - I think it will be a useful feature :-)
Well, I guess it's ok to close that one rawhide...
/etc/init.d/quota_nld init script development is covered by bug #634169 now.
