Product     : Fedora 14

Summary     : Root crontab files used to schedule the execution of programs
Description :
This package is used by Fedora mainly for executing files by cron.

The crontabs package contains root crontab files and directories.
You will need to install cron daemon to run the jobs from the crontabs.
The cron daemon such as cronie or fcron checks the crontab files to
see when particular commands are scheduled to be executed.  If commands
are scheduled, it executes them.

Crontabs handles a basic system function, so it should be installed on
your system.

Update Information:

Add --list and --test option on users request.

Create directory containing executable files (755), with some file for reading (644) and some file which is filtered: *.{rpmsave,rpmorig,rpmnew,swp,cfsaved}

run-parts --test your_directory - will list files, which would be executed

run-parts --list your_directory - will list all files, which are not filtered

run-parts still should work for cron.daily.
