It's in 1.2, if not earlier. See
It was originally a Debian extension, but it looks like it's been picked
As I said, I don't think it's just cron. Andreas M. just pointed out
/etc/logrotate.d, and /etc/X/Xsession.d (which sure looks like it uses
the same rules) among others. They may not be affected by the LSB, but
they are affected by dpkg naming conventions, and wouldn't it be nice
if we could point to some set of rules which worked for all of these
"fragment" type directories?
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
