I added a couple of sections to this article, trying to touch on the basic configuration, format, and commands of cron and crontab, and thus thought it appropriate to remove the "expansion" template from the top of the page. I have no idea if this is standard procedure, whether I expanded it to everyone's satisfaction, etc. If anyone has any complaints please fix them, put the expansion template back, berate me, or do whatever needs to be done. Since there was no explanation on this talk page as to what anyone thought needed to be done, I just guessed at what people might want to know. Please let me know if I missed the mark.

"Handling errors of jobs" section is inaccurate or incomplete and needs corrections and updated.

It was tested, failed to function, and corrections were added which were deleted for some reason.

Will have to google for correct info until correct info is restored, or the now deleted section is correctly updated. -- [[User:Jeff story|Jeff story]] 22:48, 18 March 2011 (EDT)

Ambiguity?

Under Configuration/Users and autostart, it says:

In order to use crontab application (editor for job entries), users must be members of a designated group users or root, of which all users should already be members. (emphasis mine)

This seems rather ambiguous - new users might inadvertently add all users to the "root" group. Perhaps we should change it so users is listed second? Pacman (talk) 17:17, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
