The ntp-stable tarballs are curently less-complete (less up-to-date) than
the ntp-dev tarballs.
I suspect Danny's patches have only been applied to ntp-dev, but
depending on when I last pulled ntp-dev back to -stable some of them
might be there.
Basically, we run ntp-dev all over and are expecting very few changes
between ntp-dev and what will become ntp-4.2.1.
We know that broadcasts work with networks that use ntpd. I have no idea
what tardis is doing. The fact that they apparently do not support any
authentication mechanism for broadcasts is troubling.
As for the documentation, this is a volunteer project. There are at least
three documentation channels:
- the official pages (submit your ideas to Dave)
- the FAQ (submit your ideas to Ulrich)
- the twiki (edit/add pages as you see fit)
If you post improved documentation to the newsgroup and you post
permission to have your information used in the twiki, there is a chance
somebody will see it and also copy it there. In general, I do not
copy content from the newsgroup to the twiki without explicit permission.
