chrony for DEBIAN
----------------------

 I made the following changes to the chrony distribution to package it for
 Debian:

 Added /etc/chrony and moved the config files there from /etc.  This the
 only change to the source code.
 
 Wrote brief man pages and added a few lines to the info files explaining
 how the Debian installation differs from the standard one.  I also used
 texi2html to generate html docs.

 Created default /etc/chrony/chrony.conf, /etc/chrony/chrony.keys,
 /etc/init.d/chrony, /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/chrony, /etc/cron.weekly/chrony, and
 /etc/ppp/ip-down.d/chrony files and arranged for them to be installed
 automatically.

 Arranged for a random password to be generated at installation time and
 installed in chrony.keys as key 1 (unless chrony.keys already has
 something in it).  You may change this password if you wish.

 The standard Debian chrony installation is designed for systems with an
 intermittent dial-up connection.  If you have such a system the most you
 should need to do is edit /etc/chrony/chrony.conf a bit.  If you do not
 you should read the documentation and create an appropriate configuration
 (you should read the documentation anyway).

 The standard Debian installation does not use the real time clock
 facilities.  If you want to use them you will need to edit the config
 files and scripts.

 The scripts /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/chrony, /etc/ppp/ip-down.d/chrony, and
 /etc/cron.weekly/chrony read key 1 from /etc/chrony/chrony.keys and use it
 as the password to send chronyc commands.  Thus you can change the
 password by changing this key, but if you make the command key anything
 but 1 these scripts won't work without editing.

 As installed, chronyd will be started on bootup and will attempt to
 contact the default server whenever you connect to your ISP.

 Use 'info chrony' to read the complete documentation. 

 All the files in the Debian chrony package are licensed under the chrony
 license (/usr/doc/chrony/LICENCE.gz) except where otherwise noted.

 Support for non-Intel platforms is experimental.  Also, the author suspects
 that the RTC stuff (not turned on in the default configuration) does not
 work on Alpha.  Please test it.

 The upstream version number of the previous release was 1.02.  The upstream 
 version number of this release is 1.1.  Dpkg says that 1.1 < 1.02 so I have
 had to make the Debian version number 1.10.
