Yes, I can ;-)
But! I do have a lot of service jails running at my host, thus I would like to omit modifying every jail's /etc/periodic.conf adding:
| daily_status_pkg_changes_enable="YES" # Show package changes
| pkg_info="pkg info" # Use this program

Thanks for that approach, namely adding "pkg -j jailname info" for every jail running. Due to my amount of jails I might need to add some looping over "jls -N" output instead of adding a lot of $daily_status_pkg_changes_flags.
I was hoping that I could omit programming that functionality myself, but I might need to do so.
Thanks for your input and with kind regards,
