Additional Information:
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.
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2001-11-12 17:33:31 EST
I've taken out the 'and'.  I'd rather leave the cron job enabled though.
Comment 2 Reuben Thomas 2001-11-13 04:28:44 EST
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.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2001-11-13 06:09:03 EST
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.
