I don't see how the next version is any better than the previous one.  It may 
seem that way to you, but it will be just as logical to somebody else who 
gets started the other way.

The current code says:
  ./build/main/ntpd/ntpd --version
  ntpd 0.9.2-afceec0 Mar 24 2016 22:43:18

I think I'll be happy if the tarball drops the "-afceec0" part.

I'll be happier if the text from the git version has some indication of 
whether it's post 0.9.2 or pre 0.9.3 but that's getting down into the noise.  
As long as the git tag is there, we can figure out what is going on.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
