[TAF] templates://adjtimex/{templates}

The adjtimex package introduced new or modified debconf
templates. This is the perfect moment for a review to help the package
maintainer following the general suggested writing style and track
down typos and errors in the use of English language.

If someone wants to pick up this review, please answer to this mail,
in the mailing list, with an [ITR] (Intent To Review) label.

The templates file is attached.

To propose the file you reviewed for peer review, please send a [RFR]
(Request For Review) mail with the reviewed file attached...then a few
days later, when no more contributions come, a summary mail with a
[LCFC] (Last Chance For Comments) label.

Finally, after no more comments coming to the LCFC mail, you can send
the reviewed templates file as a bug report against the package.

Then, please notify the list with a last mail using a [BTS] label
with the bug number.

Helping the package maintainer to deal with induced translation
updates at that moment will be nice. If you're not comfortable with
that part of the process, please hand it off to a translator.


Template: adjtimex/run_daemon
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Should adjtimex be run at installation and at every startup?
 adjtimex can run at system startup to set the kernel time parameters to
 the values in /etc/default/adjtimex. Don't accept if you just want to
 use adjtimex to inspect the current parameters.

Template: adjtimex/compare_rtc
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Should adjtimexconfig be run when adjtimex is installed or upgraded?
 The adjtimexconfig script will use adjtimex to find values for the kernel
 variables tick and frequency that will make the system clock approximately
 agree with the hardware clock (also known as the CMOS clock).  It then
 saves these values in the configuration file /etc/default/adjtimex so the
 settings will be restored on every boot, when /etc/init.d/adjtimex runs.
 The script takes 70 sec to run. Alternatively, you can run adjtimexconfig
 yourself at a later time, or determine the kernel variables one of several
 other ways (see the adjtimex man page) and install them in

Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 5), po-debconf

Description: Utility to display or set the kernel time variables
 This program gives you raw access to the kernel time variables.  For
 a machine connected to the Internet, or equipped with a precision
 oscillator or radio clock, the best way to keep the system clock
 correct is with ntpd.  However, for a standalone or intermittently
 connected machine, you may use adjtimex instead to at least correct
 for systematic drift.  adjtimex can optionally adjust the system
 clock using the CMOS clock as a reference, and can log times for
 long-term estimation of drift rates.
