Re: Jessie: No logrotate since October 2016?
I hate to wade into the pool of systemd hate, but is this systemd's

You'll have to check the timeframe of when these changes happened with
respect to Debian 8, but a Debian 9 system does not use cron to run

/run/systemd/system ] in various places in Debian Linux nowadays that
turns stuff off when systemd is running, as well as reliance on the fact
that systemd ignores non-native stuff if it has native stuff of the same
name (such as anacron.timer).
Moreover, you will find the similar [ -x /usr/sbin/anacron ] in various
places to control what happens when anacron is not installed.
So bear in mind that your learned ideas about what runs what are no
