fcron is a very nice and mature cron replacement with extended functionality.
It has been removed from the Debian repos apparently because systemd
provides similar functionality.  That is a bad reason for removing
packages from Debian and a very good reason to provide a Devuan specific
package.  http://fcron.free.fr/.  Thank you.

Subject: please consider packaging it

Hi, 

thanks for your request. It would be great if you could take care of
importing the package in Devuan and maintain it, especially if you are
a user of fcron. Packaging for Devuan is not hard (a minimal
introduction is provided here:
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=549).

I will modify the severity of this report to "wishlist" though,
knowing that wishes can become true if we nurture them ;)





Severity set to `wishlist'. Request was from owner@bugs.devuan.org to control@bugs.devuan.org. Full text available.
