Severity: normal

The current maintainer of adjtimex, James R. Van Zandt <>,
is apparently not active anymore.  Therefore, I orphan this package now.

Maintaining a package requires time and skills. Please only adopt this
package if you will have enough time and attention to work on it.

If you want to be the new maintainer, please see for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Description: kernel time variables configuration utility
 This package provides a utility to manipulate the kernel time
 variables.  For a machine connected to the Internet, or equipped with
 a precision oscillator or radio clock, the best way to keep the
 system clock accurate is using NTP (Network Time Protocol).  However,
 for a standalone or intermittently connected machine, you may use
 adjtimex instead to at least correct for systematic drift.  It can
 optionally adjust the system clock using the CMOS clock as a
 reference, and can log times for long-term estimation of drift rates.
