LEAPSECS -- Leap Second Discussion List


English (USA)

The LEAPSECS list was started in 2000 to discuss the issue of leap seconds in UTC. A proposal to eliminate leap seconds appeared in the November 1999 issue of GPS World and the December 2001 issue of Metrologia.

The list is open; subscribers and contributors include professionals in the specialized fields of precise time metrology and astronomical time scales. The list was transfered here from a USNO server in 2007.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the LEAPSECS Archives.
