top article style note

Is the top article style note still relevant? Which parts are meant to be "corner-cases"? --Indigo (talk) 07:48, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

I've restructured the article (some work left), let me know what you think. -- Alad (talk) 10:42, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
Ah, now I see what you had in mind. I was confused with 'below' in the note suggesting "Move #Usage below #Installation", because obviously #Usage was below #Installation in the TOC already - I should have pictured that :) Anyhow, I like most rework you did. In particular it achieves a quicker headstart for users who want to enable the basic client daemon config.
What I don't like about the new structure boils down to what you now put in the Network Time Protocol daemon#Usage merge note: It is just not ideal to have all the services/options to start the daemon right in the installation section. I have a faint memory of an older discussion about using
  1. Usage
    1. Commandline
    2. Services
or similar, but we ended up staying with the separate #Autostarting section. I will make a few edits to show how I would move forward now. --Indigo (talk) 19:11, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
Done. I know moving the services down out of installation is not what you had in mind, but to me it is just the more logical TOC like this. Feel free to roll back these edits, no problemo. Another alternative would be to create a new section above Tips&Tricks for the server configuration, but the way Network Time Protocol daemon#NTP server mode is written it fits well where it is (plus this is a time serving daemon, not a time syncing one only). --Indigo (talk) 19:56, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
I like the current order too, it solves the problem and I don't see anything wrong with explicitly saying to skip configuration if desired. Just my $0.02... -- Lahwaacz (talk) 20:42, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
Yep, it looks cleaner and there's no harm in taking full advantage of wiki links. I wasn't sure on whether to put "On network connection" in a general section or in the tips, but if other articles do latter it's fine with me.
My idea with the services was explain what commands they use; for example:
Enable the daemon with ntpd.service. This service runs ntpd directly as the ntp user (-u ntp:ntp), and allows the time to be set to any value without restriction (-g).

That's a neat idea. I did that re-using existing verbose. Please go over the result. --Indigo (talk) 16:03, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Nice work; I've made a small change: [1] Are there further thoughts, or can this be closed? -- Alad (talk) 15:14, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
