Add WEEKLY_TIME for weekly crons

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


When running cron jobs some of them can increase IO heavily, slowing the system down,  like suse-updatedb from findutils-locate, doing a large find on the filesystems. On production servers being used by several users, these scripts have to be started at non working hours.

In /etc/sysconfig/cron we already have a variable called DAILY_TIME which controls at what time the scripts in /etc/cron.daily are being started by /usr/lib/cron/run-crons .

A similar approach would be very useful for the weekly crons, allowing a better control of the day and time when weekly cron jobs are started.
