https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=256238 Bug ID: 256238 Summary: periodic: remove obsolete news.expire Product: Base System Version: 13.0-STABLE Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: bin Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org Created attachment 225351 --> https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=225351&action=edit git commit to remove news.expire from periodic Together with the initial import of 386BSD 0.1 in 1993 the daily execution of /etc/news.expire was invented (see commit 1bf9d5d9518e). This excution was maintained throughout and transferred accordingly to periodic in 1997, resulting in daily/330.news (see e.g. commit 28dce04d1975). But as far as I see there was nevery any /etc/news.expire existing. I also asked several people but none was able to explain me what news.expire could be or was at any time... -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
