I would like to drop the request for a ntp backports package. I switched
most of my servers to openntp and its way easer to debug and set-up, its
also more secure since i can finally determine the IP-addresses it
listens to. There is one major disadvantage, there is no mainstream
munin plugin for openntpd and i can tell from experience that trend
monitoring the time and time drift can help debugging some very very
nasty issues. So hereby a bounty for openntpd munin plug-ins.

I am still begging for a new grub2 backports package, the current one
can't handle ext4 with lvm and mdadm. If there is a small bounty needed
please contact me. (debian wine, donations to free software projects)

With kind regards,
