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.
