chrony 4.2-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


chrony (4.2-0ubuntu1) jammy; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian testing (LP: #1946848) and upstream v4.2.
    Remaining changes:
    - d/chrony.conf: use ubuntu ntp pool and server (LP 1744664 1754358)
    - 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) [fixed a minor typo in the comment in this update]
      + debian/ wrapper to handle special cases in containers
        and if CAP_SYS_TIME is missing. Effectively allows on 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.
  * Drop patches present in v4.2
    - d/p/allow-clone3-and-pread64-in-seccomp-filter.patch
    - d/p/fix-seccomp-filter-for-BINDTODEVICE-socket-option.patch
    - d/p/lp-1940252-rtc-avoid-printing-and-scanning-time_t.patch
  * Added changes:
    - d/t/upstream-simulation-test-suite: bump to the matching clknetsim

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.
