Make a list of servers that erroneously advertise a leap second and
publish it! It may shame some sysadmins into fixing their systems and
may also serve as a warning to others.
The list should include ONLY stratum one servers; anybody else
erroneously advertising a leap second almost certainly got it, directly
or indirectly, from a stratum one server.
