Let me emphasize that I do not have any territoriality about where
these things live.  I'm more than happy for ntp-centric tools and
documentation to live in the ntpd distribution.  If we build a 
tool over here in GPSD-land and you guys think it's generally
useful enough to move over there, we'll make that happen.

Have you ditched BitKeeper for something open-access and open-source, then?

If you have, that's great news.  If you haven't, I don't see how you can
turn people into committers easily.  Larry McVoy is notoriously stroppy
about his license requirements.
