Package: chrony
Version: 3.0-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

After upgrading to stretch I noticed my network was not registering correctly.
By this I mean that even though the network (eth0) came up and worked, it
didn't have an entry in /run/network/ifstate (the ifstate file was empty).

This is using ifupdown + ifplugd in a setup that worked fine on jessie and
works fine now after removing chrony.

It took me a while to nail down the problem, but I finally noticed this kept
showing up in my log.

    run-parts: /etc/network/if-up.d/chrony exited with return code 1

When I put an 'exit 0' at the top of that script my networking came up fine
and was added to /run/network/ifstate. So by exiting with an error that script
was preventing ifup from completing the ifstate registration.

I ultimately fixed this issue by removing chrony and switching to openntpd.

   * debian/chrony.if-up:
     - Do not pass the “burst” command to chronyc as the script could return an
     error in certain situations. As a consequence, that would prevent ifupdown
     from writing the current state of the interfaces in /run/network/ifstate.
