Re: Jessie: No logrotate since October 2016?

Really late response here, but thanks — some reading of /etc/anacrontab and run-parts does make clear that edits of the crontab will then be run by anacron

Thanks kindly!

Hello Boyan,

that this is the case, and automatically read the crontab, then write
an intelligent anacrontab with sane defaults?

From the anacron page on packages.debian.org;

This package is pre-configured to execute the daily jobs of the Debian
system. You should install this program if your system isn't powered on
24 hours a day to make sure the maintenance jobs of other Debian
packages are executed each day.

Not a full answer, but gets you part way to where you want to be, I hope.
