I'm just going through an install and really do not see any need for
changes. And 28th is a tad, ermm, short, especially with the rate Gideon
can be gotten a hold of ...

As far as I can see the only change needed is in ntp.conf from the ntp
package. 

If I understand it correctly, then
/usr/share/system-config-date/dateBackend.py reads /etc/ntp.conf on
startup and processes "server" lines in there to offer you a choice of
ntp servers.

If we really want to make sure, we could also modify
/usr/share/system-config-date/ntp.template - but that would be doing
more than upstream does, as that only contains 

server 0.pool.ntp.org 

lines.

Cheers,

Ralph
