1) if sendmail is disabled during installation, have periodic's output
logged to files (per example in
2) make this the default anyway (logging to files), arguably the vast
majority of systems' reporting is ignored :)
At least now it could be logrotated out!
Hmm, if they are "arguably" already ignoring their system emails. Won't
they then *also* "arguably" ignore their [system] log files?
Why not just remove periodic etc/periodic(daily/weekly/monthly/security)?
But maybe I've just misunderstood the attempt here.
[22:54.53] <Myke> AllanJude: will you make the installer smart that if
the user disables sendmail, that periodic's output will be sent to
[22:55.17] <AllanJude> not sure how doable that is
[22:57.20] <Myke> AllanJude:
https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?periodic(8) <-- see examples
[22:57.55] <AllanJude> ohh
[22:57.57] <AllanJude> ok then
[22:58.04] <AllanJude> should be fairly easy to do then
[23:00.02] <Myke> AllanJude: I'd argue logging periodic to files should
become the default since I'm willing to bet 99% of fBSD machines' output
[23:00.34] <AllanJude> Myke: that is a reasonable idea for freebsd 12
[23:00.42] <Myke> :)
[23:00.55] <AllanJude> want to email that to email@example.com
[23:00.57] <AllanJude> and then i'll do it ;)
