Re: ntp by default on servers in Vivid

I should add some more related links:

Debian making NTP happen by default too is being discussed in openntpd was
suggested, but this effort seems to have languished, and in Ubuntu we
have ntp in main, not openntpd.

An ntpdate issue in both Ubuntu
( and Debian
( remains
unresolved, but I think this goes away when ntp is installed, which we
want to do on a server anyway. Assuming we don't want this on a desktop,
it would still be nice to fix this bug, but it has languished in Debian
a little because ntpdate is considered deprecated by its maintainer.
