As for switching to timesyncd as default NTP client, I'm
with the code. It's a minimal SNTP client based on the ConnMan SNTP
implementation. I've tested it, found and fixed some bugs, and also
made some small improvements. In its current state, however, I'm not
sure it would be a good default client in a distribution like Fedora.
From gnome-control-center point of view, we'd like to keep on using the
org.freedesktop.timedate1 dbus interface that systemd provides. It's a
really nice abstraction and lets us configure NTP without having to deal
with editing configuration files for different NTP services that a
distro might have chosen to use.
Beyond that, whether it's systemd's internal code or chronyd or anything
else running underneath, gnome-control-center doesn't really care, As
long as it works well and we can use the timedate1 interface to
configure it. :)
Kalev, this time with gnome-control-center datetime panel hacker hat on.
