Looks good. I'll send some more comments in separate messages.
I'm getting closer to actually working on SINGLEBUFFER.
Refclock cleanup. The idea is to split the individual refclocks out from the
main ntpd package. I don't have good ideas on how to do it. Maybe use a
pipe. Maybe use SHM. ??? The current API is (much?) more complicated than
the obvious refclock stuff. There is also msyslog and record_clock_stats and
SHM cleanup. The reading side should be read only.
Better testing. We need live testing as well as build-time tests.
Release procedures: I was disappointed with the last release. I don't have a
simple suggestion on how to fix it, but NetBSD 8 was out for a long time
before our release. This may be tangled up with testing procedures.
What's the relation between your message and devel/TODO?
Should we have a semi-systematic process to review the task list occasionally?
I'm thinking of roughly monthly. Sooner if there has been a big change.
Longer if we are all working on something. But not so long that we don't
pause occasionally to review what we should be doing.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
