Time server options in system config file, no documentation

I have options set in my system config file related to timeserver features, but i can not find the documentation for this features. Its pretty basic but for my own learning/curiosity, is there any documentation for the "config timeserver" settings?

My example

config timeserver 'ntp'
	list server '0.se.pool.ntp.org'
	list server '1.se.pool.ntp.org'
	list server '2.se.pool.ntp.org'
	list server '3.se.pool.ntp.org'
	option enable_server '1'
	option interface 'wifi'
	option use_dhcp '0'



maybe this WIKI ?

ok, thx
I was expecting to find all options for the file /etc/config/system file in one place.

The remote time is since configured in /etc/config/system and not in /etc/config/timeserver any longer.

as stated in Wiki

The ntp configuration is located in system uci subsystem, and found in file /etc/config/system .

anyway, if your problem is solved, please mark topic as [solved] and answer as solution

The following standards should help keeping the wiki consistent, easy to understand for newbies, and easy to edit for casual contributors.

There can be exceptions in some cases where it makes sense, but there should be a good reason for that.

Finding documentation for the https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/base-system/system_configuration file, in the documentation https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/advanced/ntp_configuration I guess i found an exception!
