Article Proposal: cron vs systemd timers

I haven’t yet proposed a new article. I was hoping to help clean up some of the backlog. I was looking at https://teams.fedoraproject.org/project/asamalik-fedora-magazine/us/191 as an option, but decided I really want to talk about system timers as a replacement for cron. I think it’s worth proposing as a new article.

This sound like a great topic. +1 :slightly_smiling_face:

+1 here too, it’s a common topic and we have nothing on this currently!

I remember I tried to use them for user level cron replacement, but could not read my logs. I don’t remember all the details, but that this is the issue I subscribed https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/2744

Thanks for giving me some details on what you are running up against and a link to the bug you are tracking. I’ll see how the article writes itself. I’m still learning and testing things out.
