Description Sean McAfee 2010-12-30 12:50:08 UTC
In an effort to simplify our configurations, we tried moving our periodic.conf (which controls a few local periodic scripts installed to /usr/local/etc/periodic/) to /usr/local/etc/, only to find that the only overrides listed in /etc/defaults/periodic.conf are /etc/periodic.conf and /etc/periodic.conf.local. Since locally installed periodic scripts make their way into /usr/local/etc/periodic (instead of /etc/periodic), it makes sense to have the configuration live in /usr/local/etc/ as well. This seems to be more of an oversight (or holdover from OpenBSD ported code), than a deliberate decision. Fix: Apply the attached patch (done against 8.2-RC1). Patch attached with submission follows: How-To-Repeat: Attempt to install a /usr/local/etc/periodic.conf that controls which scripts are run.
