Actually, OpenBSD Foundation's OpenNTPD is _not_ a fork, but rather
another from-scratch reimplementation, as is the Red Hat-sponsored
Chrony codebase.  It's unfortunate that OpenNTPd wasn't included in the
Core Infrastructure Initiative security study, but I would expect on
general principles for it to have excellent prospects.
