In the Moment i'm packaging some software and wonder if there is a
possibility to handle files such as crontab or configuration files of other

implement this in a script?
Check out /etc/cron.d for setting up cron jobs for your package. I
suppose other applications that could support such "pluggable"
configurations have similar support. For example, apache2 lets you
put stuff into /etc/apache2/conf.d, xinetd lets you put stuff in
/etc/xinet.d, and so on.
You should look into that.
