Speaking as a representative of the NTP Public Services Project (see

is done anywhere in any community that would be likely to help increase the
quality of the NTP deployments that might be rolled out anywhere in the world.
With my Chef hat on, I think that you have picked wisely, precisely because
the NTP cookbook should be pretty simple, and it should make a good "Hello,
world" type of example that can hopefully be followed by others.
That's all theory, of course -- I haven't actually looked at any of the
changes yet, and I know nothing about the generation of "attribute sanity
tests" or "foodcritic linting", so I'll have to go see if I can make heads or
tails of the output.

I'll take a look at this when I can, but I can't make any promises. The next
few weeks are likely to be very busy for me.
