chrony 3.4-1ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


chrony (3.4-1ubuntu1) disco; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian unstable (LP: #1802886). Remaining changes:
    - d/chrony.conf: use ubuntu ntp pool and server (LP 1744664)
    - Set -x as default if unable to set time (e.g. in containers) (LP: 1589780)
      Chrony is a single service which acts as both NTP client (i.e. syncing the
      local clock) and NTP server (i.e. providing NTP services to the network),
      and that is both desired and expected in the vast majority of cases.
      But in containers syncing the local clock is usually impossible, but this
      shall not break the providing of NTP services to the network.
      To some extent this makes chrony's default config more similar to 'ntpd',
      which complained in syslog but still provided NTP server service in those
      + debian/chrony.service: allow the service to run without CAP_SYS_TIME
      + debian/control: add new dependency libcap2-bin for capsh (usually
        installed anyway, but make them explicit to be sure).
      + debian/chrony.default: new option SYNC_IN_CONTAINER to not fall back
        (Default off).
      + debian/ wrapper to handle special cases in containers
        and if CAP_SYS_TIME is missing. Effectively allows to run NTP server in
        containers on a default installation and avoid failing to sync time (or
        if allowed to sync, avoid multiple containers to fight over it by
      + debian/install: make available on install.
      + debian/docs, debian/README.container: provide documentation about the
        handling of this case.
    - d/postrm: re-establish systemd-timesyncd on removal (LP: 1764357)
    - Notify chrony to update sources in response to systemd-networkd
      events (LP: 1718227)
      + d/links: link dispatcher script to networkd-dispatcher events routable
        and off
      + d/control: set Recommends to networkd-dispatcher
  * Dropped Changes (upstream):
    - d/p/lp-1718227-nm-dispatcher-for-networkd.patch
    - d/p/lp-1787366-fall-back-to-urandom.patch: avoid hangs when starting
      the service on newer kernels by falling back to urandom. (LP: 1787366)
  * Added Changes:
    - d/postrm: respect policy-rc.d when restoring systemd-timesyncd
      (LP: #1771994)

chrony (3.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Import upstream version 3.4:
    - Please see /usr/share/doc/chrony/NEWS.gz for the release notes.

  * Merge branch “experimental” into “master”.

  * debian/chrony.service:
    - Conflict with ntpsec.service.

  * debian/copyright:
    - Update copyright years.

  * debian/patches/*:
    - Remove fix-samplefilt-unit-test-to-work-with-low-precision-clock.patch,
    fixed upstream.

chrony (3.4~pre1-2) experimental; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/*:
    - Cherry-pick upstream patch to fix samplefilt unit test to work with
    low-precision clocks. This should prevent chrony from failing to build
    from source on HPPA and Alpha.

chrony (3.4~pre1-1) experimental; urgency=medium

  * Import upstream version 3.4-pre1:
    - Please see /usr/share/doc/chrony/NEWS.gz for the release notes.

  * debian/:
    - Add “.gitlab-ci.yml” file to use GitLab Continuous Integration.

  * debian/chrony.if-{post-down,up}:
    - Use the new “onoffline” command to tell chronyd to switch all sources to
    the online or offline status according to the current network configuration.

  * debian/chrony.ppp.ip-{down,up}:
    - As for ifupdown scripts, use the “onoffline” command.

  * debian/control:
    - Bump standard-version to 4.2.1 (no changes required).

  * debian/patches/*:
    - Remove fall-back-to-urandom.patch. Applied in this prerelease.

  * debian/post{inst,rm}:
    - Use “command -v” instead of “which” to enhance portability.

chrony (3.3-3) unstable; urgency=medium

  * debian/:
    - Normalize packaging with “wrap-and-sort -ab”.

  * debian/control:
    - Bump standard-version to 4.2.0:
        ↳ Install upstream release notes as “/usr/share/doc/chrony/NEWS.gz”.
          Installing these as “/usr/share/doc/package/changelog.gz” is now

  * debian/patches/:
    - Cherry-pick upstream patch to avoid hangs when starting
    chronyd on newer kernels by falling back to urandom.
    Thanks to Gustavo Scalet <email address hidden> for the report and
    the initial patch. (LP: #1787366, Closes: #906276)

  * debian/upstream/metadata:
    - Add DEP12 upstream metadata file.

chrony: Versatile implementation of the Network Time Protocol

 It consists of a pair of programs:
 chronyd: This is a daemon which runs in background on the system.
 It obtains measurements (e.g. via the network) of the system's offset
 relative to other systems and adjusts the system time accordingly. For
 isolated systems, the user can periodically enter the correct time by
 hand (using 'chronyc'). In either case 'chronyd' determines the rate
 at which the computer gains or loses time, and compensates for this.
 Chronyd implements the NTP protocol and can act as either a client or
 a server.
 chronyc: This is a command-line driven control and monitoring program.
 An administrator can use this to fine-tune various parameters within
 the daemon, add or delete servers etc whilst the daemon is running.
