Once 2036, or even 2035 shows up, set a flag somewhere that we are
preparing for rollover. Heck, do it now. Mark 1900 as "history" and
2036 as "future". When 2036-02-07 comes around, mark that one as
history as well.
Unfortunately, legacy programs won't be able to deal with it. Perhaps
it's a good thing that we have almost 20 years to prepare for it.

Yep, this could be like Y2K. Once the clock rolls, I don’t think
NTP yet has a field showing epoch number so how do you differentiate
between 1900 and 2036?

A few weeks ago I was requesting help in thinking through some DHCP

Anyone care to guess what is magic about February 7, 2036?
