Is the addition systemd-timesyncd documented somewhere?  'just
something along the lines of "Simple ntpdate-like time synchronisation
is now provided by systemd".  I read the NEWS when upgrading and
didn't notice this change.

Does the laptop task support non-systemd inits?  If so,
would there be a benefit to a systemd | ntpdate (or alternative)
dependency for the task?


P.S. Is openntpd the defacto standard these days, for servers?
