Bug#585617: ITP: mcron -- Guile-based program for running jobs at regular times

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

I am the upstream developer and maintainer of the GNU mcron package, and intend
to create a Debian package for it.

The GNU package mcron (Mellor's cron) can be a 100% compatible replacement for
Vixie cron (though the Debian package will not be configured this way, but as a
stand-alone utility for users not requiring any root privileges). It is written
in pure Guile, and allows configuration files to be written in scheme (as well
as Vixie's original format) for infinite flexibility in specifying when jobs
should be run.

The package carries the GPLv3.

The package's homepage is http://www.gnu.org/software/mcron and it can be
downloaded from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mcron.
