Package: openntpd
Version: 3.9p1+debian-3
Severity: minor

ntpd.conf says
   # Addresses to listen on (ntpd does not listen by default)
and "man ntpd.conf" says
   listen on address
              Specify a local IP address or a hostname the ntpd(8)
              daemon should listen on.
but nowhere does it explicitly say what it will actually listen
for. This may be obvious to a Debian openntp maintainer, but it would
be nice if it was immediately obvious to people who haven't used ntp
before too

So I suggest that the ntpd.conf entry be changed to
   # Act as an ntp server by listening to queries from these IP addresses/DNS hostnames

And that "man ntpd.conf" be changed to
   listen on address
              The ntpd(8) daemon will act as an ntp server by
              listening to queries from this address. address can be
              either an IP address or a DNS hostname.

 openntpd (3.9p1+debian-4) unstable; urgency=low
   * New maintainer (Closes: #543854).
   * The 'say-aaaaaaaaaaahh' upload.
   * Apply a pidfile patch, upstream doesn't like the idea of pidfiles, but
     sometimes they are useful for quick monitoring (Closes: #354825).
   * Avoid stripping by default on their own (Closes: #437691).
   * Dies if no peer servername is invalid, and logs badpeers through CRITICAL
     syslog. Thanks SergeyBKirpichev (Closes: #456661).
   * Depend on $network at init start and do not go through reloading if there
     is no listening interface declared. Thanks SergeyBKirpichev
     (Closes: #495528, #507586, #529984).
   * Explicity set default config file (Closes: #570253).
   * Enhance ntpd.conf manpage to verbosely remember we don't listen to any
     by default (Closes: #575705).
   * Switch to 3.0 source format, drop dependency on quilt.
   * Use hardening-include to handle gcc Hardening features.
