Default ntp update version

I noticed that although I'd fetched the latest update to ntp from the
mirror it wasn't being installed.

It seems that the version numbers have got out of step. According to
the changelog the update that was released in August should have had
the version number 4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_7.2, whereas in CentOS it's
actually 4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_8.2.

The changelog says the latest update is 4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_8.1,
which is what CentOS has, but that's a lower version than the August
update.

You may want to check upon this CentOS bug report:

Which has been closed as 'no change required'. Some change is required.

As things stand my systems are on version 4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_8.2,
the CentOS name for the August update. There's an October update
called 4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_8.centos.2 which has the same changelog
as the August one, and which wasn't installed because it has a lower
version number.

Now there's a new update with version 4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_8.1 which
has important fixes in it, but which is also not being installed because
it has a lower number than the incorrectly versioned August update.

The CentoS version on the August update is wrong (it should have been
4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_7.2) and it's preventing the December update from
being installed.
