cron job comment is nonsense
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:14 EDT
Description of Problem:
The comment of /etc/cron.daily/tetex.cron doesn't make sense.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Read the comment!
This job is itself rather dodgy: I always disable it. Disk space is cheap, waiting for fonts to be generated is annoying. I find if I leave the job that some rarely used fonts get deleted, and it's most annoying, especially as I tend to have bouts of using LaTeX every few months, so sometimes I start using it only to find that almost all my fonts have disappeared.
I've taken out the 'and'. I'd rather leave the cron job enabled though.
Perhaps the time could be increased to 180 or 360 days? In that way it would
have little or no impact on serious users, and still clear up the machines of
naive users who use LaTeX once (perhaps by mistake), and generate perhaps
several tens of Mb of fonts without realising it.
I would have thought that serious users would use their fonts at least every
three months. But I'll change it to 180 days if you like.
Fixed in 1.0.7-36.4.
