NTP users are strongly urged to take immediate action to ensure that their NTP daemons are not susceptible to being used in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Please also take this opportunity to defeat denial-of-service attacks by implementing Ingress and Egress filtering through BCP38.

Internationalization and Localization (GSoC 2011)
The goal of this project:
1. NTP utilities' i18n support, all programs in NTP will be ready to localization, that's, if we want NTP to support a new language, we won't need to change the program any more;
2. clear and simple data interface for localization, that is, a well arranged string list which covers the programs' output and man page and web pages, with as less redundancy as possible;
3. at least two language(non-English)'s localization of the above data; one is Chinese(my native language), the other will be selected after the goal 2 is done; I choose two here just for better testing goal 1 and goal 2;
