Hi, Kiss--

Try <questions at lists.ntp.org <mailto:questions at lists.ntp.org>>; BCC:ing <pool at lists.ntp.org>.

leap=00 means it's not primed to announce a leap second; if
you wanted to test in more detail, set the date ahead to 2015-6-30
and see whether pending leap second announcement shows (leap=01).
