	  dcron is a time-based job scheduler with anacron-like
	  features.  It works as a background daemon that parses
	  individual crontab files and executes commands on behalf of
	  the users in question.

	  Upon installation, this package will enable a system level
	  cron daemon with hourly, daily, weekly and monthly crontabs.

	  However, it doesn't allow non root users to create their own
	  crontab file. This is because /var/spool/cron/crontabs is
	  non user writable.

	  Typically, a crontab group is created on the system and
	  users allowed to create crontab entries are added into this
	  group, while crontab executable is owned by root:crontab
	  with sgid bit enabled.
