== Comments ==

* Come up with a sensible package list for ubuntu-dev-team so members of the ubuntu server team can upload packages to the archive. -- zul

* The ubuntu-server-dev team should mirror the seeds, but this might be somewhat extensive. -- Daviey

* re: ntpdate versus ntpd - Do we really need to add another daemon to the default install?
  * The problem we are increasingly seeing is clock skew, i'd argue that accurate timekeeping is more important on a server than desktop... and ntpdate simply works on if up, not continually. --Daviey
