 Strong NO vote.

  Replacing a robust and mature package with an immature one which may
have security issues (in fact has had recently) should not be taken lightly.

   The prime motivation of this project is a use case of intermittent
internet connections of 5 mins a day.

  I seriously doubt that is the common use case for majority of fedora

 I think this is a terrible idea.


  Aside - I also dont understand the motivation to start again and
reimplement the wheel all over again ... and not take advantage of a
mature product and work to improve ntpd or enhance it.
