This project began as an effort to address serious security issues
with NTP Classic, and we intend to keep a particularly strong focus on
code security and code verifiability.
[[platforms]]
== Supported platforms ==
{project-shortname} supports all operating systems conforming to
POSIX.1-2001 and ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (aka C99). Primary platforms
include Linux and the *BSD family; any reasonably modern proprietary
Unix will also serve
If you have a requirement for time service on an OS we don't support,
and its API is reasonably close to our POSIX/C99 conformance baseline,
we'll try to meet you halfway. We're open to development partnerships
with individuals and organizations who have special needs and can
contribute either engineering time or money to meet our costs of
development; our only hard condition is that all joint results must be
redistributable as open source.
