      Import Debian changes 3.0pl1-130 · 1edaf0aa
      Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña authored and Matthias Klumpp's avatar Matthias Klumpp committed
      cron (3.0pl1-130) unstable; urgency=medium
        * debian/postinst: Do not do check if /var/spool/cron/crontabs if empty
          (Closes: 892720, 892721, 892724)
        * debian/cron.service: 
            - Add dependency on nss-user-lookup.target in the definition which
              properly fixes the issues when cron is started before centralised user
              repositories are available (e.g. LDAP or Active Directory). This
              should avoid errors in syslog similar to the following: 
              "crond[PID]: (CRON) bad username (/etc/cron.d/JOBNAME)" 
              (Closes: #767016, #801384, #783665) (LP: #1593317)
            - Also remove Type=idle change added in previous upload, which was not
              the correct fix to apply.
            - Add automatic restart on failure (Closes: #834728)
        * debian/cron.init: Revert previous change - instead of adding $all, add sssd
          to the services that should be started/stopped before/after cron.
        * crontab.5: 
           - Add improvements and fixes to manpage provided by Philip Hands 
            (Closes: #792572)
           - Document that system wide defaults run from 6 am to 7 am.
            (Closes: #757191)
           - Document how asterisks are processed in dom and dow fields using
             patch provided by Christian Pekeler (Closes: #840601)
             Also see https://treats.wdt.io/cron-bug.html
        * debian/crontab.main, crontab.5: Add documentation comments similarly as to
          how Fedora / Red Hat Enterprise Linux documents (crontab package). This
          comments more descriptive and provides inexperienced users with a better
          understanding of the syntax.  (Closes: #705570)
      cron (3.0pl1-129) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Acknowledge NMU
        * debian/cron.init, debian/cron.service: Make sure cron is started last and
          stopped first, with patch provided by Harald Dunke 
          (Closes: #767016, #801384, #783665) (LP: #1593317)
        * crontab.1: Document limitation due to account renaming as described in
          Ubuntu's bug 73398
        * crontab.5: Document the need to set the DISPLAY environment when running
          scheduled tasks that interact with the user's desktop environment 
          (LP: #891869)
        * cron.8: Fix typo (Closes: 819832)
        * debian/control: Replace dh-systemd dependency with debhelper (lintian fix)
        * debian/README.Debian: Update maintainer address
        [ Christian Kastner ]
        * debian/postinst: Fix for CVE-2017-9525: group crontab to root escalation via postinst
        as described by Alexander Peslyak (Solar Designer) in
        (Closes: 864466)
      cron (3.0pl1-128.1) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Non-maintainer upload.
        * Properly transition system jobs to system_cronjob_t SELinux context and
          stop relying on refpolicy specific identifiers (Closes: #857662)
        * d/cron.service: Add a dependency on remote-fs.target (Closes: #815088)
      cron (3.0pl1-128) unstable; urgency=medium
        * d/cron.service: Use KillMode=process to kill only the daemon.
          The default of KillMode=control-group kills all the processes in the control
          group, for example when restarting the daemon. This is a deviation from past
          behavior we do not want. Thanks, Alexandre Detiste! Closes: #783683
      cron (3.0pl1-127) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Drop $READ_ENV from cron's command line. It does not belong there.
          Closes: #766779
      cron (3.0pl1-126) unstable; urgency=low
        * Packaging (general): removed unused files from the source that had been
          already removed in 3.0pl1-117 but got reintroduced due to a merge.
      cron (3.0pl1-125) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Acknowledge NMUs. Thanks, Laurent Bigonville and Ansgar Burchardt.
          Closes: #749271
        [ Christian Kastner ]

          - Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes needed)
          - Canonicalize Vcs-* URLs
        * debian/copyright:
          - Bump years
          - Don't use spaces in License short name
        * debian/source/lintian-overrides:
          - Drop overrides from pre-UTF-8 debian/control era
        * debian/rules:
          - Extend documentation
        * debian/cron.init:
          - Include winbind in Should-Start/Stop. Closes: #732203
        * crontab.5:
          - Don't use hyphen as a minus sign
        * cron.8:
          - Drop stray words in cron.8. Thanks, Regid Ichira! Closes: #702091
          - Fix misspelled 'sytem'. Thanks, green! Closes: #753775
        * cron.c,crontab.c:
          - Use basename of argv[0] as syslog tag. Closes: #752750
        * cron.c:
           - Use case-insensitive comparison in charset selection. Thanks,
             Malcolm Scott! LP: #1169160
        * entry.c:
          - Detect invalid entry: step specified without a range. Thanks,
            Justin T. Pryzby! Closes: #733478
          - Error out when a command field is too long instead of silently
            truncating it. Closes: #686223, LP: #826702
        * do_command.c:
          - Fix initialization and increment of mailed bytes counter.
            Closes: #691488
        * cron.c, do_command.c:
          - Add an option -n to include FQDN in mail subject. Closes: #570423
        [ brian m. carlson ]
        * config.h, do_command.c:
          - Send proper 8-bit emails by including an appropriate MIME-Version and
            adjusting the Content-Transfer-Encoding header accordingly.
            Closes: #694686
        [ Javier Fernández-Sanguino ]
        * Change systemd definition in order for the daemon to read an honor
          /etc/default/cron (Closes: #754279)
      cron (3.0pl1-124.2) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Non-maintainer upload.
        * debian/cron.service: Set IgnoreSIGPIPE=false. (Closes: #756047)
        * debian/cron.service: Add Documentation field.
      cron (3.0pl1-124.1) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Non-maintainer upload.
        * Add pam_loginuid module to the PAM session stack (Closes: #677443)
        * Add systemd service file. Thanks to Michael Stapelberg (Closes: #652440)
      cron (3.0pl1-124) unstable; urgency=medium
        [ Release targeted to Wheezy including fixes for critical/important bugs ]
        * debian/{preinst,postinst,postrm}: remove obsolete /etc/cron.daily/standard
          on upgrade. (Closes: #679062)
        * debian/cron.init: Have the init.d file remove cron's pidfile if it 
          exists after killing the process. The pidfile should be removed
          by cron itself (but it isn't) through its SIGhandler as done in later
          versions in cron (4.1 and cronie). This fix is, however, simpler and less
          intrusive. (Closes: 679106, 615855)
        * debian/control:  
             - Reword last paragraph since cron does not provide any standard tasks
               anymore. (Closes: 674192)
             - Update to Standards-Version: 3.9.3 - which BTW includes an indication
               on which are the valid cron filenames.
             - Depend on debhelper >= 9 (lintian warning)
      cron (3.0pl1-123) unstable; urgency=low
        * debian/standard.daily: Apply patch from Steve Allison to prevent checking
           two times the same filesystem. This prevents bogus warnings about missing
           lost+found in schroot bind mounts (Closes: #660879)
        * debian/rules: Apply patch from Steve Langasek to add cross compiler
          support to cron (Closes: #666892)
        * debian/cron.default, debian/standard.daily, debian/rules: Remove
          the lost+found check as this is no longer required and causes
          issues with some filesystems (e.g. bind mounts, locally mounted USB
          drives). Additionally, in some filesystems the directory
          will be generated when required. (Closes: #620164, #658743, #662605,
          #660879, #579640, #473711)
      cron (3.0pl1-121) unstable; urgency=low
        * debian/control:
          - Put the maintainer address in UTF-8 encoding
        * debian/postinst:
           - Only go ahead when configuring the package (Closes: #653304, #657073)
        * debian/source/lintian-overrides:
          - Removed, no longer required
        * crontab.5:
          - Escape the '%' in the examples so that they can work when copied over to
            crontab (Closes: #642309) (LP: #1110147)
          - Remove tabs from manpage since they are not formatted properly in the
            nonfill area
        * cron.8, crontab.1, crontab.5:
          - Fix formatting errors in manual pages with patch provided by David
            Prévot (Closes: #643603)
        * debian/cron.default:
          - Fix typo (Closes: #643897)
        * debian/compat:
          - Set to compatibility version 9 to enable hardened build flags 
            (Closes: #653720)
      cron (3.0pl1-120) unstable; urgency=low
        * do_command.c, cron.h, cron.8: 
          - Change the behaviour when logging the information of the child processes.
            A new loglevel (8) is introduced and documented in cron.8. The previous
            log format is kept unless the sysadmin choses to select this new option.
            (Closes: #637295) 
        * debian/examples/cron-stats.pl:
          - Adjust the script with the changes introduced in the logging behaviour.
        * cron.8: Fix minor formatting errors
        * debian/cron.bug-script:
          - Report properly on the EDITOR variable. Thanks to Jan Braun for the
          - Also report the contents of /etc/cron.* dirs. This is helpful when
            debugging syntax/mode/naming errors. Users that do not want to share this
            information should edit/delete before reporting bugs.
        * debian/changelog: Typo fixes and missing information
        * debian/control:
          - Update package description, removing the "backup of key system files" as
            a feature. The last of these responsibilities were transffered in -117.
        * crontab.5: 
          - Document limitations of the periods that can be defined in crontab syntax
            and provide workarounds (Closes: #640086)
          - Document limitation of the use of @reboot due to the definition of the
            boot sequence as suggested by Regid Ichira.
        * debian/source/lintian-overrides:
          - Add overrides file for lintian required because the maintainer name in
            debian/changelog and in debian/control do not match due to encoding.
        [ Christian Kastner ]
        * debian/control:
          - Fix broken Vcs-* URLs
        * debian/NEWS: 
          - Remove spurious NEWS entry (the entry for -110 was duplicated at the
      cron (3.0pl1-119) unstable; urgency=low
        * The development team has migrated from Subversion to git, with the latter
          becoming authoritative immediately. A log of the migration process can be
          found in debian/svn-git-migration.txt.
        [ Javier Fernandez-Sanguino ]
        * debian/NEWS:
          - Remove the entry introduced in the previous version until an agreement is
            reached on the desired behaviour (Reopens: #608774)
        * debian/standard.daily: 
          - Work properly if mount points have a space (Closes: #633972)
          - Sanity check mount point value before generating an error
        * Add one new example script:
           - cron-tasks-review.sh: Reviews the files that exist in /etc/cron.d
             and in /etc/cron.{hourly,daily,weekly,monthly} to find those that
             will not be run by cron due to some error.
        * debian/copyright:
          - Adjust debian/copyright to acknowledge the (c) and license of the new
            example script.
        * debian/control:
           - Remove Steve from the Uploaders field, no longer needed there
        * cron.8: 
           - Document the Debian specific changes in a separate section, describing
           how /etc/cron.{hourly,daily,weekly,monthly} and /etc/cron.d behave
           and should be used.
        [ Christian Kastner ]
        * debian/control:
          - Updated Vcs-* URLs to point to the new git repository
        * debian/cron.c, database.c:
          - Interpret the "-L" option of the daemon as a bitmask, and add initial
            support for three selectors: start, stop, end
        * database.c, cron.c, cron.h, debian/copyright:
          - Check orphaned crontabs for adoption. Fix taken from Fedora cronie.
            Closes: #634926
        * do_command.c:
          - When logging a job run, prefix the command text with the PID of the
            process. Closes: #609780
        * debian/NEWS:
          - Added entry documenting the change of the "-L" option as well as the
            dropping of LSBNAMES in -117.
      cron (3.0pl1-118) unstable; urgency=low
        * debian/control
          - Limited Build-Depends for libaudit-dev to linux-any. I erroneously
            assumed it applied to other OSes as well.
        * debian/rules
          - DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS for audit support is limited to Linux platforms
        [ Javier Fernandez-Sanguino]
        * debian/NEWS
          - Document the new behaviour of cron regarding logging of non-zero
            exit status cronjobs (Closes: #608874)
      cron (3.0pl1-117) unstable; urgency=low
        * Makefile:
          - Fixed integration of cron-internal debug code into the package building
            process. Instead of having to modify debian/rules, this can now driven by
          - Removed hard-coded compiler flags, honoring those provided by
            dpkg-buildflags instead
        * do_command.c:
          - When logging the end of cron jobs, log the PID of the actually exec'ed
            user command, not the PID of the parent. Closes: #609780
        * database.c:
          - Split crontab security checks (type, owner, mode, links) into separate
            tests with individual error messages instead of the cryptic message
            "WRONG INODE INFO". Closes: #625493
          - Extended the ability to recover from broken symlinks (added in -110) to
            also recover from failed security checks above. Fixes to these were not
            being detected as cron only looks at mtime. Closes: #625495
          - Also recover from syntax errors. Fixes to these did change mtime, but
            were ignored as cron permanently removes broken crontabs from its
            database of files to check. Closes: #627859
        * cron.8:
          - Documented the fact that /etc/crontab and files in /etc/cron.d must not
            be group- or other-writable. Closes: #625491, LP: #741979
        * crontab.5:
          - Specify parse order of crontabs (thanks, Jonathan Amery). Closes: #622645
        * debian/control:
          - Bumped Standards-Version to 3.9.2 (no changes needed)
          - Added missing Build-Depends on libaudit-dev
          - Removed Conflicts for nonexistent package suidmanager
          - Removed Conflicts for lockfile-progs (which should have been a Breaks
            anyway) as we no longer rely on it, we use flock from util-linux instead
          - Changed architecture-specific Build-Depends on libselinux1-dev to
            linux-any instead of negating all other OSes
        * debian/cron.default:
          - Merged the LSBNAMES option with EXTRA_OPTS. Both where used to pass
            options to the daemon, making one of them redundant
          - Added the ability to disable the daily lost+found check by setting the
            new variable CHECK_LOSTFOUND to "no". Closes: #579640
        * debian/cron.init:
          - Don't call start-stop-daemon directly, use LSB init functions instead.
            Among other things, this works around the cron daemon not deleting its
            pidfile from /var/run/. Closes: #615855, 622348
          - Added $network to Should-Start
        * debian/rules:
          - Converted to dh syntax. This included replacing some manually executed
            steps with debhelper file-automated ones (eg: cron.man, cron.examples)
            to lessen clutter
          - Completely rewrote the PAM/SELinux/audit integration parts. PAM support
            was being skipped on kfreebsd and hurd, and audit support was completely
            broken. From now on:
            + PAM is enabled by default on all platforms
            + SELinux is enabled by default on linux-any
            + audit is disabled by default on all platforms
            All of these can be driven by DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS (see debian/rules)
          - Do not compress example perl scripts
        * debian/{prerm,postrm,postinst}:
          - Let dh_installinit manage stopping/(re)starting of jobs instead of
            calling invoke-rc.d ourselves
        * debian/standard.daily:
          - Backup of /etc/{passd,group} is no longer performed by cron; the task
            was handed over to src:shadow (see #554170). In Squeeze, this task will
            be performed redundantly by both packages (as discussed on
            debian-release) (Closes: 333837)
          - Rewrite locking and lost+found-checking code, based on a submission to
            the BTS by Justin B. Rye. Closes: #478967, #537073, LP: #257367
          - Parse /etc/mtab instead of /proc/mounts; the former makes handling bind
            mounts easier. Closes: #578856
          - Pull in /etc/cron/default for CHECK_LOSTFOUND (see above)
        * debian/copyright:
          - Convert to DEP5 format (r173)
        * debian/watch:
          - Added watch file to silence a lintian warning, even though the last
            upstream release was in 2004
        * Packaging (general): removed a lot of cruft which seems to have accumulated
          over time. This included all the cron-se stuff, which appears to have been
          a remnant from the SELinux integration process, and was either not being
          used anymore or completely broken. Also, the patches/ directory was
          removed, as that location has a specific meaning and the patches in there
          were no longer relevant.
      cron (3.0pl1-116) unstable; urgency=high
        * Upload with approval from Release Team to get RC bug fixes in Squeeze
          (see http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2010/12/msg00719.html)
        * do_command.c, popen.c:
          - Use fork() instead of vfork().
        * do_command.c:

          - Changed Default-Stop from (1) to (empty). rc0 and rc6 were removed in
            3.0pl1-101 because the stop action -- sending SIGTERM/SIGKILL to cron
            on shutdown/reboot -- was redundant. This, however, also applies to
            rc1, because killprocs will do that for us.
        * debian/postinst:
          - Removed obsolete dpkg file backup code, this has been handed over to dpkg

            as sendsigs take care of stopping cron" debian/cron.init. Also
            change the postinst call to update-rc.d so no stop symlinks
            are added in those runlevels (Closes: #422785)
            [ Notice that the existing symlinks are not removed when upgrading
              it is up to the administrator to remove this himself so as to not
              break local changes ]
          - Parse system's locale to set the charset used to email cron tasks. This
            will affect tasks that expect a 'C' locale (for example to parse
            messages) and are running in systems with a non-C locale. 
            (Closes: #410057, #405335, #309150)
          - Add support for /etc/default/cron and make it possible to add additional
            options and control if environment is parsed. (Closes: #396928, #471506)
        * cron.c:
          - Do not use ANSI_x3.4-1968 but US-ASCII instead since it is the preferred
            MIME name as per http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets"
            (Closes: #415302)
        * crontab.c:
          - Add an option to ask for confirmation when a crontab is to be removed,
            based on Fedora's patch for this same request. Users wanting this 
            behaviour have to alias cron (just as rm is aliased to 'rm -i')
            (Closes: #117758, #289636, #324103, #414048)
          - Print the location of CRONDIR when printing files on the crontab dir so
            that the error messages have the absolute location of the files they
            refer to. (Closes: #391350)
        * Lintian fixes:
           - Modify debian/copyright to point to the location of the Artistic
      cron (3.0pl1-100) unstable; urgency=low
        [ Last upload for etch fixing documentation in this package ]
        * Describe the -L option in cron's manpage.
        * Fix minor typos, and change Debian-specific content of manpages and
          default crontab that could lead to user's being confounded. Explicitly say
          that both /etc/crontab and files under /etc/cron.d/ can have users in the crontab
          lines.  (Closes: #402934)
      cron (3.0pl1-99) unstable; urgency=low
        * Fix the test for anacron in /etc/crontab that would make cron run the
          run-parts regardless of whether anacron was installed or not, thanks to
          Paul Kimoto for spotting the bug introduced in the fix to #383857 
          (Closes: #392600)
        * Fix lintian error by adding a comment line in the init.d script
      cron (3.0pl1-98) unstable; urgency=low
        * Fix LSB-formatted init.d meta info, thanks to Petter Reinholdtsen 
         (Closes: #386709)
        * Make crontab tasks run with CWD=/, to make SELinux happy, thanks to
          Erich Shubert (Closes: #383857)
        * Use latest lsb logging functions, thanks to David Hardeman 
          (Closes: #384858, #389893)
      cron (3.0pl1-97) unstable; urgency=high
        * Fix the behaviour of crontab so that in systems that do *not* have
          a cron.allow file users will be allowed to use crontab, change
          the behaviour of the previous version because it was contrary
          to the manpage (now a user that is in *both* cron.deny and
          cron.allow will be allowed access) (Closes: #383741)
      cron (3.0pl1-96) unstable; urgency=low
        * Fix crontab.5 typo (changed quotes ' to ") that prevent a line from being
          presented (Closes: #379230)
        * Small typo fix in cron.8
        * Introduce Steve Grubb's patch to emit audit log message on crontab denial
          based on the patch from Fedora, and adapted to Debian's cron version. The
          main difference is that audit logs are generated if cron is compiled to
          'ALLOW_ONLY_ROOT'. This patch is currently disabled
          since LSPP's audit library is not yet available.
        * Change misc.c so that a user that is *both* in the cron.deny and
          cron.allow files will be denied access (previously he would be permitted
        * Add two example scripts:
           - stats-cron.pl: A script written by myself that can be used to audit
             the behaviour of cron and benefits from the new cron logging (-L 2)
             option to log the *end* of a cronjob.
           - crontab2english.pl: A script written by Sean M. Burke that translates
             the crontab notation to natural language.
        * Adjust debian/copyright to acknowledge the (c) and license of the above
      cron (3.0pl1-95) unstable; urgency=low
        * Handle errors when reading crontabs so that it stops reading entries in 
          a crontab file after a syntax error. This prevents a rogue user from
          dumping binary files in /etc/cron.d/ or /var/spool/cron/crontabs/ 
          and have them executed by cron (but binary files under
          /etc/cron.{daily,weekly,monthly} will still be processed as they are
          handled by run-parts). Thanks to Faidon Liambotis for the patch.
          (Closes: #378153)
        * Reuse vixie-cron-4.1-_51-bz180145-mail_i18n.patch from Fedora Core in
          order to setup a proper Content-Type when sending e-mails. The
          Content-Type will be set to the default system locale or cron's
          environment (if it modifies it). If the locale is undefined it will
          default to US ASCII (Closes: #338051)
          - There is no need to define a CHARSET variable now with the above
          patch (Closes: #309150)
        * Support kfreebsd-amd64 by modifying the Build-Depends for SElinux 
          (Closes: #361458)
        * Fix typos in the crontab.1 manpage spotted by Jonas Koelker 
          (Closes: #369153)
        * Add option to control logging (-L) with patch provided by Steve Fosdick.
          This makes it possible to log cron job finishing if you use -L 2
          (Closes: #271747, #318247)
        * Change Steve's email in crontab.c error message to
      cron (3.0pl1-94) unstable; urgency=low
        * Lsb-base is now priority 'required' (3.0-16) instead of 'extra' 
          (3.0-15) so I'm moving the Suggests: up to a Depends:  (Closes #360236)
      cron (3.0pl1-93) unstable; urgency=low
        * Include patch from Ubuntu that incorporates LSB functions to the init.
          This should help have Ubuntu synchronise their changes easier.
        * Fix FTBFS on GNU/kFreeBSD with patch from Aurelien Jarno (Closes: #338246)
        * Add brackets to the initscript for bash completion (Closes: #350605)
      cron (3.0pl1-92) unstable; urgency=low
        * Don't use SElinux on GNU/kFreeBSD, as it is Linux-specific, patch
          from Aurelien Jarno (Closes: #325404)
        * Added LSB formatted dependency info in init.d script (Closes: #335305)
      cron (3.0pl1-91) unstable; urgency=low
        * Proper fix for #324017, the previous fix was dumb. This one
          includes fixes from Fedora which should prevent segfaults under
          other circumstances.
      cron (3.0pl1-90) unstable; urgency=low
        * Fix SIGSEV due to a NULL free in the libselinux code, as a consequence
          cron dies before cronjobs are started (Closes: #324017)
      cron (3.0pl1-89) unstable; urgency=low
        * Fix bashishm in cron.daily script (Closes: #323983)
      cron (3.0pl1-88) unstable; urgency=low
        * Taken over maintainership of this package and made the
          "Let's clean up the bug list" release
        * Added a debian/TODO file with some tasks not done in this upload.
        * Use patch provided by Marc Dequenes to fix FTBFS on Hurd 
          (due to the use of selinux) (Closes: #279429)
        * Enable pam_limits.so in the default configuration (Closes: #300725)
        * Fix standard.daily so it can cope with mount points with spaces 
          (Closes: #198211)
        * Standard.daily now warns if no lost+found directory was found in a local
          ext2/3 filesystem (Closes: #46779) [as the other wishlists are 
          checksecurity related]
        * Standard.daily now will also check xfs filesystems (Closes: #279613)
        * Fix crontab.5's example to prevent confusion to users, default shell
          is always /bin/sh (Closes: #231172)
        * SELinux related fixes:
          - Applied Russell Coker patches to fix three bugs that appear when
            using SELinux (Closes: #264320)
          - Applied Manoj Srivastava's patches to turn on SELinux support 
            (Closes: #315509)
        * Add help text when creating new crontabs as suggested by Anthony Towns
          (Closes: #18733)
        * Use debhelper version 4 instead of the deprecated version 3, removed
          debian/conffiles as it is no longer needed.
      cron (3.0pl1-87) unstable; urgency=low
        * Clarify wording about /etc/cron.d files in cron.8.
        * Make sure file descriptor 0==stdin at startup, so we don't
          accidentally use it for something else. (closes: #295589)
      cron (3.0pl1-86) unstable; urgency=high
        * And yes, still needs urgency=high.
      cron (3.0pl1-85) unstable; urgency=low
        * Umm, yeah, need the 'install' file in CVS. 
      cron (3.0pl1-84) unstable; urgency=high
        * Urgency "high" to make the sudden freeze. 
        * Exit with failure status from crontab when action fails (thanks to
          Christoph Berg for noticing and the patch) (closes: #229604)
        * Require anacron to be executable (closes: #240822)
        * Set ttyname to prevent pam_access confusion. Problem and solution from
          Daniel Kobras (it's nice to get both!) (closes: #254845)
        * Fix reference to syslogd(8) in cron.8 (closes: #246580)
        * Fix awkward construction in crontab.5 (closes: #252420)
        * Cleanup explanation of LOGNAME in crontab.5 (closes: #257672)
        * Don't use --exec in start-stop-daemon calls.
      cron (3.0pl1-83) unstable; urgency=low
        * Update default MTA from exim to exim4 (closes:#228561)
      cron (3.0pl1-82) unstable; urgency=low
        * Added /etc/cron.d/.placeholder to prevent dpkg from removing the
          directory when all packages using /etc/cron.d are purged. Likewise to
          cron.weekly (which needs it), and cron.daily and cron.monthly (which
          don't, but I like consistency.) (closes: #217760)
        * Add '--retry 5' to the stop part of /etc/init.d/cron restart, so that
          cron is completely stopped before attempting restart. (closes: #223945)
        * Add cron.hourly directory (closes:#200848, #219338, #226710)
        * Support the LSB naming convention for /etc/cron.d (closes: #171587)
        * Move cron.d manual section out of DEBIAN SPECIFIC, since many
          distributions now support this. (closes:#2277770)
        * Clarify that environment setting are not re-expanded (closes: #223570)
        * Some crontab(5) man page fixups (closes: #200100)
      cron (3.0pl1-81) unstable; urgency=low
        * Only protect owner/group setting on individual user crontabs by
          version, the setgid setting of /usr/bin/crontab needs to happen every
          time (unless the admin has set something with
          dpkg-statoverride. (closes: #210838)
        * Change cron init script so that '/etc/init.d/cron {stop,restart}' only
          kill off the parent daemon, not currently running cron jobs. Much
          thanks to Dean Gaudet for the patch. (closes: #211849)
      cron (3.0pl1-80) unstable; urgency=low
        * Kill one last spurious syslog() (closes: #211117, #211245)
        * Allow system crontabs to be symlinks (closes: #210467)
      cron (3.0pl1-79) unstable; urgency=low
        * Don't exit postinst when user is unkown (closes: #208432)
        * Remove spurious debug messages (closes: #211117)
      cron (3.0pl1-78) unstable; urgency=low
        * Okay, I think the owner/group fixup in for setgid crontabs is finally
          as right as it's going to be. It will work for usernames with spaces,
          and if the user doesn't exist (e.g. old crontab for a deleted user),
          it will print an error message but not exit, which I think is okay. If
          you have a username with a newline in it, then you deserve to lose,
          and you will (closes: #210838).
        * Allow cron to run in foreground. Possibly useful for running it under
          monitoring tools like runit, monit, daemontools, etc. Thanks to Erich
          Schubert for the patch (closes: #108492)
        * Use the PAM environment settings, if so configured. (closes: #203737)
      cron (3.0pl1-77) unstable; urgency=low
        * Smarter fix-up of crontabs groups (closes: #208555)
        * Add dependency for adduser (closes: #208848)
        * Support new PAM @includes for standard PAM configuration.
        * Move note about loss of checksecurity from debconf to NEWS.Debian.gz,
          the more appropriate place. Since that was the only use of debconf,
          this also (closes: #195887)
        * Add commented-out pam_limits support. (closes: 190556)
      cron (3.0pl1-76) unstable; urgency=low
        * Fix postinst bug for no user crontabs (closes: #208433, #208435, #208448)
      cron (3.0pl1-75) unstable; urgency=low
        * Make crontab setgid 'crontab' rather than setuid 'root' (closes: #18333)
      cron (3.0pl1-74) unstable; urgency=low
        * Split out the checksecurity script et. al. to seperate package
        * Detect missing or stupid stepsize (e.g. */ or 7-9/0) (closes: #183650)
        * Allow for crontab editors that don't write to the same file. Finally.
          (closes: #149908)
        * Don't weird out if VISUAL or EDITOR is set to "" (closes: #148809)
        * Fixed several documentation/script typos and clarifications
          (closes: #149448)
        * Standards-Version 3.5.9
      cron (3.0pl1-73) unstable; urgency=low
        * Fixed spelling error in control file (Hi, Matt!) (closes: #124523)
        * Check for existence of /etc/init.d/cron in prerm (closes:#151006)
        * Added conflict for ancient version of lockfile-progs (closes: #123269)
        * Added Mosix FS to list of excluded FS types in checksecurity.conf 
          (closes: #129177)
        * chmod group.bak instead of passwd.bak twice (closes: #130079)
        * Added ext3 for lost+found searches (closes:#135013)
        * Finally fixed longstanding bug where cron doesn't recognize crontab
          changes until 1 minute later. I don't know what I was looking at before,
          as it was trivial. I apologize to all those bothered by this problem.
          (closes: #74524, #13952)
        * Remove debian/preinst, used only for a fix for a pre-slink development
        * Added support for invoke-rc.d, patch from Andreas Metzler (closes:#162676)
        * Finally figured out why some error messages weren't getting printed
          for the system crontabs (/etc/crontab, /etc/cron.d/*). Added new error
          printing function and use it when user.c calls load_entry(). 
          (closes:#79037, #122358)
        * Remove -odi option from invocation of /usr/sbin/sendmail. (closes:#146224)
        * Don't run @monthly jobs every day. (closes: #150591). Ditto
          @yearly. (Isn't it funny that despite the big whinefest about how
          critically important the @whatever timespecs are, nobody previously
          noticed this serious bug in the entire 7+ years I've been maintaining
        * Fix grammatical here in the cron(8) manpage. (closes: 147277)
        * Fix spelling error in checksecurity.conf. (closes: #151601)
        * Fix check for nfs/afs mounts in checksecurity. (closes: #157822)
        * Replaced some tabs with spaces in crontab.5. (closes: #159912)
        * Fix cron Makefile to not hardcode '-s' in $(INSTALL) commands.
          (closes: #164966)
      cron (3.0pl1-72) unstable; urgency=low
        * Add type usbdevfs to skipped "file systems" (this is /proc/bus/usb)
          (closes: #113186,#113187)
        * Removed 'xfs' from list of skipped file system types. Unfortunately,
          it appears to be used by both the arla network file system and the SGI
          XFS filesystem, and I must make the conservative choice. (closes: #113234)
        * Remove extra diff in checksecurity. (closes: 113950)
        * Add type none to skipped "file systems" (--bind mounts) (closes: #111395)
      cron (3.0pl1-71) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Fixed nasty typo in checksecurity. (closes: #112156)

        or only -69.
      cron (3.0pl1-70) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Catch full disk when writing new crontab. (closes: #110612)
        * Don't modify backup file modes if no change (to prevent misleading
          time mods). (closes: #104093)
        * Remove obsolete reference to /bin/mail in crontab.5.  (closes: #110962)
        * Add Marc Merlin's checksecurity patches with more configuration
          options. (closes: #89547, #63445)
        * Make all setuid.{today,yesterday,etc.} files group adm. (closes: #109520)
      cron (3.0pl1-69) unstable; urgency=low
        * Don't run checksecurity on any partition mount nosuid or noexec.
        * Don't run on devpts, either.
      cron (3.0pl1-68) unstable; urgency=low
        * Finally tracked down the problem with @{reboot,hourly,etc.} commands
        in the root crontabs (/etc/crontab, /etc/cron.d/*) (closes:#62141, #84727)
        * Minor cosmetic cleanup in lost+found output, from Matthijs Melchior 
      cron (3.0pl1-67) unstable; urgency=high
        * With crontab -e, don't give uid root on re-edit.
      cron (3.0pl1-66) unstable; urgency=low
        * The "Julian Gilbey has been spending too much time proofreading"
        release. Remove hyphens in cron.init (closes:#91323)
        * change log_it() to open and close syslog every time, remove SIGPIPE
        catcher, etc., all in attempt to keep PAM happy.
        * Added original location to copyright file (closes:#88507)
        * Allocate username dynamically in crontab.c (closes:#89040,#62268)
        * Remove pam_limits.so from cron.pam file.
      cron (3.0pl1-65) unstable; urgency=high
        * Close reboot file /var/run/crond.reboot after creating it, duh. Leaving
        it open allowed possible writes from cron jobs.
      cron (3.0pl1-64) unstable; urgency=high
        * The "President's Birthday" release.
        * Add checks for setuid() failures, to avoid running user jobs as root.
        (closes:#85609, #86775) 
        * Add portability flag -P to df (in /etc/cron.daily/standard) to 
        avoid problem with long device names. (closes:#86851)
        * Convert from suidmanager to dpkg --statoverride.
        * Remove unnecessary dependency on bsdutils (it's Essential)
        * Change compat.h to not cause inclusion of sys/time.h (instead of 
        time.h), due to recent change in glibc. Why it was doing this, I have
        no idea.
      cron (3.0pl1-63) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Fix mistaken diagnostic in crontab ("Reached end of file 
        while reading environment").
        * Fix "Too many arguments to [" error in postinst. (closes:#79725)
      cron (3.0pl1-62) unstable; urgency=medium

        * Fixed various complaints generated by -Wall :-), except 'rcsid unused'
      cron (3.0pl1-57) frozen unstable; urgency=low
        * Release Manager: 61296 is RC bug;
        * Change lockfile-progs "Depends" to "Suggests" (policy violation),
        only try to use lockfile-create in /etc/cron.daily/standard if it is

        * Fixed spelling in checksecurity.8 (closes:#45281)
        * Only look in /lost+found if it exists (closes:#46389)

      cron (3.0pl1-53) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Applied OpenBSD patches supplied Topi Miettinen. Big change is
        better handling of timekeeping (in particular, changes to/from daylight
        savings time) (closes:#8499).
        * Redirect stdin, stdout, and stderr to /dev/null.
        (closes:#37189, #23231, #30653).

        * Add 'xfs' to the list of nfs/afs like file systems in checksecurity.conf,
        as it appears that xfs==arla and arla==xfs. If there are other file systems
        that show up as 'xfs', please let me know (closes:#37523)
        * Don't rotate wtmp and btmp (closes:#42301).
      cron (3.0pl1-52) unstable; urgency=high
        * Patch to fix "Reverse DoS": user could send arbitrary options to 
        sendmail via MAILTO variable. Fix by not allowing spaces or leading
        dashes in MAILTO, and run sendmail as user, not root.
      cron (3.0pl1-51) unstable; urgency=low
        * Changed default of "crontab -l" to NOT list the extra header lines. May
        obtain original behaviour by setting "CRONTAB_NOHEADER=N".
        * Fixed comment in misc.c that accidentally cause the SIGPIPE handler to

      cron (3.0pl1-50) frozen unstable; urgency=low
        * Fixed rules file *again* so that crontab suidness doesn't get
          stepped on by debhelper under certain kernel versions.
      cron (3.0pl1-49) frozen unstable; urgency=low
        * Check for /etc/shadow and /etc/gshadow separately (closes:Bug#30232)
      cron (3.0pl1-48) frozen unstable; urgency=low
        * Fixed rules file so that crontab doesn't get suid bit removed by latest
        version of debhelper. (closes:Bug#29683)
      cron (3.0pl1-47) frozen unstable; urgency=high
        * Removed close of {stdin,stdout,stderr}, as it appears that
        some cron users expect it.
      Cron (3.0pl1-46) frozen unstable; urgency=medium
        * changed mention of /var/spool/crontabs to /var/spool/cron/crontabs, and
        added example /etc/crontab. (closes:Bug#28458,Bug#23101)
        * Incorporated buffer overflow patches. (closes:Bug#26705,Bug#26749) 
        * Added backup of /etc/shadow and /etc/gshadow in cron.daily/standard.
        * Better daemonization (close stdin,stdout,stderr). (closes:Bug#23231)
        * Do cron.daily a little earlier, try to avoid overlap with cron.weekly.
        * Added note in crontab.1 and crontab.5 about trailing newline requirement.
      cron (3.0pl1-45) frozen unstable; urgency=high
        * Updated README and README.Debian w.r.t. file locations.
        * Updated crontab.1 w.r.t. location of allow and deny files.
        * Fixed problem in postinst when new install (instead of upgrade) 
        * Smarter algorithm for checking /etc/cron.d for changes, no longer
        spins up laptop disks every minute. Thanks to Alexander "Shurik" 
        Shumakovitch for the fix.
        * Re-did checksecurity to only report NFS/AFS insecure mounts
        instead of running find on them (suggestion from Gregory Stark).
      cron (3.0pl1-44) unstable; urgency=low
        * Fixed standards version reference.
        * Fixed init script "comment", sigh. Let this be a warning to you: NEVER EVER
        change a file with doing a complete test, even if it is "just a comment".
        Bug#19845,Bug19852). Sheesh. 
      cron (3.0pl1-43) unstable; urgency=medium
        * Removed support for TMPDIR. This is due to the problem it causes
          with emacs -- emacs does different things with it's backup files
          depending on whether or not the file is in /tmp. Emacs probably ought
          to use TMPDIR instead of /tmp in its check. I've opened a "wishlist"
          bug for crontab to support TMPDIR. 
          (closes: Bug#15985)
        * When USE_SIGCHLD is defined, before running user process, set handling 
          for SIGCHLD to SIG_DFL, not SIG_IGN. Despite documentation that the
          default for SIGCHLD is ignore, the behaviour is different.
        * Moved allow and deny files from /var/spool/cron to /etc/cron.{allow,deny}
        * filenames in /etc/cron.d must comply with run-parts naming convention -
          alpha-numeric, underscore, or hyphen. This ensures that conffile
          remains (e.g. package.dpkg-dist) files don't get run.
        * removed cronanacron command from /etc/crontab and distribution -- 
          replaced by /etc/cron.d/anacron file (from anacron package, not cron).
        * Documented /etc/cron.d dir in manpage and readme.debian
        * modified checksecurity.conf to not check auto file systems. 
        * crontab -u `whoami` now works. (closes:Bug#8702)
        * documented CRONTAB_NOHEADER in crontab.1
        * /etc/crontab now uses run-parts(8) --report switch. (closes:Bug#18273)
        * fixed initialization of oact in misc.c. (closes:Bug#17134)
        * converted to use debhelper rather than debmake.
        * changed date format in checksecurity so that we don't get false positives
          after six months. (closes:Bug#19025)
        * remove /etc/cron.{allow,deny} on purge
      cron (3.0pl1-42) unstable; urgency=low
        * Don't output header on 'crontab -l' if CRONTAB_NOHEADER is 'Y' (Bug#15642)
        * Read files in /etc/cron.d in addition to /etc/crontab (Bug#16628, 
      cron (3.0pl1-41) unstable; urgency=low
        * Updated crontab to use /usr/bin/editor if EDITOR and VISUAL undefined.
        * Added support for TMPDIR from crontab (Bug#9309)
        * Compress /usr/doc/cron/changelog.Debian -- this time for sure! (Bug#15296)
      cron (3.0pl1-40) unstable; urgency=low
        * Correct directory reference in standard.monthly to /var/log 
        (Bug#12315, Bug#13466)
        * Added -DUSE_SIGCHLD to defs, needed for alpha (Bug#12855,Bug#8611). 
        May also fix Bug#9075.
        * Changed check for suidmanager (Bug#9326)
        * Checksecurity no longer checks fat or vfat filesystems (Bug#8845, 
        * Changed spaces in crontab to <TAB>, appearance only (Bug#13369)
        * Removed bashism from standard.daily and checksecurity (Bug#9908,
        * Added CHECKSECURITY_DISABLE flag to checksecurity.conf.
        * Get the changelog names correct (Bug#14618)
        * Correct day-of-month and month ranges in crontab.5 (Bug#15073)
      cron (3.0pl1-39) unstable; urgency=low
        * Added configuration variable to eliminate error messages from
          checksecurity's find command 
        * Better integration with anacron: suggest anacron, call anacron
          on a regular basis so that it can keeps it's status up-to-date. New
          file /usr/sbin/cronanacron.
        * Call savelog for /var/adm/btmp from /etc/cron.monthly/standard.
      cron (3.0pl1-38) stable unstable; urgency=low
        * When upgrading from -36 or -36.1, stop old cron daemon
        in preinst, because the prerm's in those versions doesn't.
        * Follow console message standard.
      cron (3.0pl1-37) stable unstable; urgency=medium
        * Corrected postinst,prerm, and postrm scripts -- Installs and
        removes rc.d links, and re-starts cron after install.
        * More fixes from the BSD crew, sent to me by Marek Michalkiewicz: mostly
        checks for null pointers, but also a few Makefile fixes, and at least
        one potential buffer overrun (but I know of no exploits).
        * Left in suidmanager stuff, but corrected default permission to 4755,
        per Debian standards.
        * Added CHANGES file (as /usr/doc/cron/changelog.upstream.gz) to
        distribution. Added upstream README to distribution.
        * Moved files out of ./debian/extra into ./debian because dpkg-source
        cannot deal with createing directories. Hmmph.
        * Removed filereaper reference from standard.daily
      cron (3.0pl1-36.1) stable unstable; urgency=HIGH
        * Mended `find' invocation in debian/rules.
        * Serious security hole (buffer overrun) fixed.
        * Silly suidmanager stuff added by debmake.  Pah. 
      cron (3.0pl1-36) frozen unstable; urgency=low
        * Removed DEBUG logging about SIGPIPE -- it's generated by every
        child once syslogd has been restarted.
      cron (3.0pl1-35) frozen unstable; urgency=low
        * Converted to new source format
        * Added code in misc.c to catch SIGPIPE and re-open syslog. This
        is all in #if defined(DEBIAN), and should be removed when syslog(3)
        is fixed. Also added -DDEBIAN to build commands in Makefile.
