I have written to SuSe help as well, so I'll wait and see what comes out of

I'm still confused by this "English sentence":
In order to maintain the time as precise as possible, this procedure shall be
repeated several times the week after at the soonest.

I presume they mean that I have to do the same thing ( what was suggested on
their help page) several times this week and ASAP.
And I also presume that when I do this it will make changes to /etc/adjtime.
But what will happen if I reboot several times in that week?
I'm not to worried about it , to be honest. I just brought it up because of
the bad English translation.
