Cron to Systemd Timer migration

Notes

Cron job that should be migrating should only be those that are in a package that already depends on systemd

Create packaging guidelines proposal regarding systemd time units with samples. DONE

Proposal approved by FPC https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ticket/261 Packaing guidelines http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:CronFiles

Create a tracker bug for requires and timer migration

Cron to timer migration https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=991679

Requires crontabs https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=947037


Should time units be bound to their corresponding service unit so they start and stop when unit is started?

Add requires to cron to packages that do not depend on systemd

Add a section about timer units to systemd wiki page
