That said, I hope we could better manage crontabs in the future.
I take for granted that the debian installs will have only cronie as
crontab, but I also wonder if they could be moved to the /home, so they
are stored and backed up there with all the rest of the user data,
instead of having one file per server at a different location.
They could for instance live at $HOME/crontabs/crontab and
Such crontabs wouldn't run when the /home is not available, but it
doesn't seem a big issue, given that most scripts would need some kind
of fs access.
Looking at cronie source, it seems that it would perfectly work if the
files at /var/spool/cron contained symlinks instead of files and is
indeed documented in crontab(5).
Combined with its clustering support, such setup should work.
