Description Ram Ranganathan 2012-07-02 17:40:37 EDT
Description of problem:
The cron jobs directory is symlinked with a full path, when a gear is moved across districts, the uuid may change which results in the symlink being invalid.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create an app and add the cron cartridge to the app.
2.  Move the gear to another district.
Actual results:
cron jobs are not executed.

Expected results:
cron jobs should run. 

Additional info:

The best fix is to use relative sym links which ensures that the links would still be valid even after a gear moves across districts. Plus need to migrate any existing gears using cron on prod.
