Description Kenyon Ralph 2010-01-03 20:50:01 UTC
Anacron's pkg-message configuration hints should mention that anacron should be run periodically, not just at boot time. If it's not run periodically, then a system which is up for several days without rebooting will not have its anacron jobs run at all.

Wow, I still fail at making it appear correctly on the web interface.
This is my final attempt. It's a simple enough patch to decipher,
