Bug#838031: task-laptop: Add 'ntp' to list of recommended packages.

Package: task-laptop
Version: 3.31+deb8u1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


When I didn't have 'ntp' installed on my laptop, I found that the clock drifted significantly from the true time. (It was almost four minutes fast when I noticed it last fall!)

To help other Debian users avoid this, I think adding ntp to the list of recommended packages would be helpful. I've attached a patch that I think does that.
