On the Fedora-arm list I was told about systemd-timesyncd.
Much better for these systems than chronyd which is suppose to be the
replacement for ntpdate...
I am looking into this; it sounds exactly what I need. Plus when you
make your os image you can:
chown systemd-timesync:systemd-timesync /<mount>/var/lib/systemd/clock
And firstboot will have a rather current time.
Oh course this assumes the image builders include systemd-timesync as
part of the base install.
