Hi Dave,

By "spec" do you mean the SNTPv4 RFCs? Or a draft of the full NTPv4
RFC (which I can't seem to find)?

Or by "spec" do you mean the documentation that comes with the code?

Is there still an effort to product an RFC for NTPv4 underway? Or do
the SNTPv4 RFCs suffice for describing the protocol (leaving the core
clock algorithms up to the implementation)?
