The cron daemon is a background process that runs particular programs at
particular times (for example, every minute, day, week, or month), as
specified in a crontab. By default, users may also create crontabs of
their own so that processes are run on their behalf.
Output from the commands is usually mailed to the system administrator
(or to the user in question); you should probably install a mail system
as well so that you can receive these messages.
This cron package does not provide any system maintenance tasks. Basic
periodic maintenance tasks are provided by other packages, such
as checksecurity.

2016-04-05 - Martin Pitt <martin.pitt@ubuntu.com>
cron (3.0pl1-128ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Add debian/cron.preinst: Handle /etc/init.d/cron symlink → real file

behavior we do not want. Thanks, Alexandre Detiste! Closes: #783683
