This is bcron, a new cron system designed with secure operations in mind.
To do this, the system is divided into several separate programs, each
responsible for a separate task, with strictly controlled communications
between them.  The user interface is a drop-in replacement for similar
systems (such as vixie-cron), but the internals differ greatly.
This package contains the bcron programs.
