Description tharvik 2020-11-17 23:09:24 UTC
In /etc/ntpd.conf, the default is to uses constraints from "https://www.google.com". Can the default be changed to "https://gentoo.org" as to avoid pinging some GAFAM each time it is updating?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge =net-misc/openntpd-6.2_p3-r2
2. optionally dispatch-conf
3. grep google /etc/ntpd.conf
Actual Results:  
Yield some match

Expected Results:  
Yield no match

I think the infrastructure behind www.google.com is a bit more extensive than that of www.gentoo.org, which is why openbsd uses it as a default. No matter where in the world you are you're likely to have a short hop to a reliable google farm.

It's a default, you can always change it. I'm not sure what you're talking about regarding it switching back to google on every upgrade? The config file should be under CONFIG_PROTECT purview, it won't be overwritten unless you do it yourself...

Isn't Google banned in China?
