Bug#4672: no crontab entry for calendar -a
Info from the manual page:
Calendar checks the current directory for a file named calendar and dis
plays lines that begin with either today's date or tomorrow's. On Fri
days, events on Friday through Monday are displayed.
The following options are available:
-a Process the ``calendar'' files of all users and mail the results
to them. This requires super-user privileges.
On BSD system 'calendar -a' runs every night by default.
So I suggest to add a /etc/cron.daily/calendar that calls 'calendar
-a' every night.
(It should be possible to disable this by editing
/etc/cron.daily/calendar because in a multi-machine nfs-mount
environment each of the computers will send this mail.)
