This one is a big one for me. 4.2.0 fixes a lot of outstanding
problems for a lot of sites, and if we're going to have this in base,
then we need to keep fairly up-to-date with it.
Do we not already have a person within the FreeBSD project who is
responsible for tracking NTP development and keeping the NTP code
within FreeBSD in sync?!? I'm not a kernel hacker, but I'd be
willing to step up to the plate to be a coordinator for this effort,
if there's not already someone doing this.
I'm a contributor to ntp.org, and I use FreeBSD systems,
including some running 5.x. I know plenty of people who are much
more knowledgeable on this subject than I am, but if there's no one
doing this very important job, then I'm willing to take that on.
