Subject: [gentoo-user] Sync and glsa-check from cron

Hi there,

I'm planning to set my mother up with a very simple gentoo box, with
only what she needs etc.

Ideally it should require almost no interaction from me, and just
keep itself working and secure.

So, I'm planning to run "sudo emerge --sync" and "sudo glsa-check -f
new" from a cron job, perhaps once a week.

I can set up the sudoers part all fine, but is there anything I
should watch out for / consider when running these maintenance tools
from a cron job?

Thanks,

-Nick
