            Bug ID: 213742
           Summary: /etc/crontab $PATH modification
           Product: Base System
           Version: CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin

crontab(5) :
Several environment variables are set up automatically by the cron(8) daemon. 
SHELL is set to /bin/sh, PATH is set to
and LOGNAME and HOME are set from the /etc/passwd line of the crontab's owner.

/etc/crontab :

I then think that /etc/crontab should set :

(I also think that /etc is no more needed in $PATH since this commit :

It would be more coherent, and also more convenient, without being more risky.

Thank you very much !
