Are you using Autokey in production? If so, please contact Harlan - he's got some questions for you.
Unit Testing (GSoC 2010)
The goal of this project is to cover as much of the codebase as possible with unit tests. The top priority will be to implement tests for libntp, and after that move on to ntpd and ntpq. Tests will be written using Google Test.
My work is kept in a separate BitKeeper repository, located at the developer machines. The path is:
the code is now in ntp-4.2.7p75.
