Bug#373824: RFH: ntp -- Network Time Protocol: network utilities
We could use a few more people to help with the ntp package. We have a
new mailing list and a subversion repository hosted under the pkg-ntp
project on alioth. There is a boatload of bugs to deal with, most of
which are not that hard but need someone with a little time and
dedication to evaluate them.
The package description is:
NTP, the Network Time Protocol, is used to keep computer clocks accurate
over the Internet, or by following an accurate hardware receiver which
interprets GPS, DCF-77, NIST or similar time signals.
This package contains control programs which can access a remote NTP
server. Thus you will need either ntp-simple or ntp-refclock;
ntp-refclock includes drivers for radio clocks.
For more information about the NTP protocol / NTP server configuration
and operation, load the optional Debian package 'ntp-doc'.
