We shouldn't publish URLs in something that will get widely distributed/used
without checking with the owner.
Plan B would be to host a copy of the file ourselves. Then we can update it
as appropriate and we can beef up the server if the load becomes significant.
That's a commitment to long term service.
Quirks in doc:
ntpleapfetch will validate the file currently on the local system and
if necessary, updates leap-second definition file.
That seems awkward. "the file" isn't well specified. The tense of validate doesn't match the tense of updates. How about:
ntpleapfetch will validate the leap second file on the local system and
if appropriate, fetch and install a new version.
If the file does not exist, is not valid, has expired, or is expiring
soon, a new copy will be downloaded. If the new copy validates, it is
installed and NTP is (optionally) restarted.
It shouldn't be restarted. Sending ntpd a SIGHUP will check for a new copy.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
