I'm seeing this same thing in our diffs.  Any word on a work around or
should I just ignore it?

Subject: [rancid] VLAN 1 port members change when port goes down

Hi list

I'm trying to tune the signal to noise ratio from rancid and I have an
with VLAN 1 (Yes, yes, I know you shouldn't use it. Dealing with legacy
config here).

When a port in VLAN 1 goes down, the next time rancid runs I get diffs

  !VLAN: VLAN Name                             Status    Ports

  !VLAN: 100  VLAN0100                         active    
  !VLAN: 110  VLAN0110                         active    

When the port comes back up, I get the reverse.

Anyone figured out a way to stop the port memberships flapping or
exclude it
from the rancid diffs?
