Description Dmitry Marakasov freebsd_committer 2016-05-27 10:46:15 UTC
Created attachment 170722 [details]

ansible `cron' module does not work correctly: when writing crontab, it passes arguments to crontab(1) in wrong order (`crontab <newcrontabfile> -u <user>' instead of `crontab -u <user> <newcrontabfile>'). This leads to rewriting root's crontab instead of appending user's. The fix was already upstreamed:


but since it'll take some time to get into the release, it'd be nice to have it in the port right now. MFH candidate as well.

fix crontab module

Please use this instead. It rebases the patch on ansible
and lists the patch and uses the EXTRA_PATCHES approach to avoid
modifying sysutils/ansible1.

Thanks for the fix! I had to do a similar thing with "at" module
a while ago.

In order to merge to stable, you can merge it together with r415910,
or, if you would prefer, add this one as a second line to EXTRA_PATCHES.
