[j-nsp] JUNOS Vulnerability

The idea is very simple, which is possibly why no one else on the planet will raise the issue besides me.  We define several communities in our 'groups' configuration which are applied to the actual 'community' configuration.  The reason being, the communities must be defined twice - one as a regular community and one as an inverse.  Rather than typing out my community member values twice, we harnessed the power of 'groups' for this purpose.  If our communities were simple values like "x:x", I would just put them in twice, but several communities are huge regular expressions that take up several lines of configuration and will, from time to time, need to be modified.

     in  the  past  rpd  may  have  asserted  once  you have defined a
     community  but  no members are configured and therefor this check
     was added. What Is the purpose to have communities defined without
     members ?
