Logging and Debugging API Overhaul (GSoC 2009)
Redesigning NTP's logging/debugging system will improve ntpd's logging and diagnostic capabilities. It will also give better control over logging/debugging.
A consistent logging interface for NTP and its projects would simplify its codebase and would make it more consistent. It also would benefit other NTP projects like SNTP by giving it acesss to its logging/debugging interface.
All in all it would benefit both developers and users by unifying logging/debugging interfaces under a improved system.
A big part of this project besides coding is designing and planning the improved logging/debugging system as well as coordinating the work necessary to implement these changes.
