Subject: [gentoo-dev] RFC: defaults for /etc/cron.daily in /etc/crontab
Date: Fri, 21 Jun 2002 16:17:07
Message-Id: 20020621211742.GA23880@localhost.localdomain
1 According to what was proposed by Thilo Bangert on bug #3296 I'm making
2 a RFC regarding the default time at which /etc/cron.daily cron jobs
3 should be ran, i.e., whether they should be run at midnight or later on the
4 night instead.
6 Note that only the default value is in question. Although it's not
7 difficult to change the default it does take some time and pacience to
8 understand how crow in used in Gentoo, especially the /usr/sbin/run-crons script. So please give your opinion, and also what settings that you usually choose [if any].
10 Please see for more some
11 preliminary [opposite] opinions [appearentely coming from two distinct schools - RedHat
12 and Suse, respectively].
