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

This is the last call for comments for the review of debconf
templates for adjtimex.

The reviewed templates will be sent on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 to the package
maintainer as a bug report and a mail will be sent to this list with
"[BTS]" as a subject tag.


Template: adjtimex/run_daemon
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Should adjtimex be run at installation and at every startup?
 Running adjtimex at system startup will set the kernel time parameters to
 the values in /etc/default/adjtimex.
 You should not choose this option if you just want to
 use adjtimex to inspect the current parameters.

Template: adjtimex/compare_rtc
Type: boolean
Default: true
# Translators: do not translate "tick" and "frequency"
_Description: Run adjtimexconfig 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 seconds to run, so running it for every upgrade
 may be a waste of time. Alternatively, you can run adjtimexconfig
 manually when needed, or determine the kernel variables by using other
 methods and set them manually in /etc/default/adjtimex.
Source: adjtimex
Section: admin
Priority: optional
Maintainer: James R. Van Zandt <jrv@debian.org>
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 5), po-debconf
Standards-Version: 3.8.0

Package: adjtimex
Architecture: any
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, debconf | debconf-2.0
Suggests: ntpdate
Description: kernel time variables configuration utility
 This package provides a utility to manipulate 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
 accurate is using NTP (Network Time Protocol).  However, for a standalone or intermittently
 connected machine, you may use adjtimex instead to at least correct
 for systematic drift.  It can optionally adjust the system
 clock using the CMOS clock as a reference, and can log times for
 long-term estimation of drift rates.
