Cool.  Anything that gpsd should patch to be better/easier?

I still don't understand why anyone would run gpsd/ntpd for a stratum 1
under systemd(umb).  A lot of complication for negative benefits.

Can you confirm that your gpsd is running on start, before any gpsd
clients connect to it?

Interesting.  As this pages says:

"Raspberry Pi OS (previously called Raspbian) is our official operating
system for all models of the Raspberry Pi."

So the distro formerly known as Raspbian.

No mention of Ubuntu or Buster anywhere on that page.
