I'm pretty sure I know why.
Please don't take this the wrong way, especially after all the great
help I was given, and correct me if I'm mistaken, but to the
unsuspecting outsider the ntp documentation is terribly wordy and... I
don't know... unfocused maybe? I started browsing the ntp.org site and
my eyes glazed over rather quickly.
I had much better luck with the ntp documentation that comes with FreeBSD:
Maybe that *is* part of the official ntp documentation, but even so it
was much easier to find the relevant parts on freebsd.org (and I'm a
Linux user who wouldn't normally go to that site).
Combine that sort of concise info with a few simple, no-nonsense
examples and that should be enough for 99% of users. I'm a sysadmin,
this is just one fire to put out among a dozen others, just tell me
where to begin and I'll build upon that.
You guys need to more clearly separate the basic stuff from the advanced
but rarely used topics.
