Contributions have started to come in at the Network Time Foundation (www.nwtime.org), a non-profit set up to support the Network Time Protocol and other projects. says Sue Graves, foundation business development manager..NTP is maintained by Harlan Stenn working full time and a few other contributors working part time.
