I recently signed up for the NTP “questions” mailing list. (I’ve been a lurker there for a long time.) My first question was — for good and sufficient policy reasons — held for moderation. I understand the reason and I don’t object.

Perhaps I can help… I’d like to volunteer to serve as a moderator for the list, if you’ll have me.
I’ve been a user and administrator of NTP configurations (Linux, SunOS, Solaris, MacOS-X, Windows and recently, FreeBSD) since the mid 1980s. (I took courses from Professor Dave Mills at U of Maryland in the 1970’s). I’ve been a system administrator for over 40 years. I recently retired from Rutgers University in NJ, so I have a bit of time on my hands that I’d like to give back to the community.
