Updated: cron-3.0.1-5

I have updated the version of CRON in cygwin/contrib to 3.0.1-5.

This version adds a postinstall script which creates the /var/cron
and /var/cron/tabs directories on installation.  This should lower
the chance that cron creates these directories with wrong mode
and ownership.

=======================================================================
Cron is neither patched for nor tested on 9x/ME. If it doesn't work,
feel free to send me patches to accomodate 9x/ME. If you have problems,
I assume it will have to do with file permission or user identity
checks, probably.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

Note that we do not allow downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka   
cygwin.com) due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.

In the US,
ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Germany,
ftp://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/pc/gnuwin32/cygwin/mirrors/cygnus/ is
usually pretty good.

In the UK,
http://programming.ccp14.ac.uk/ftp-mirror/programming/cygwin/pub/cygwin/
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package then
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another mirror.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.  Really.
No kidding.  Email cygwin stuff to cygwin@cygwin.com.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.

Did I mention that I'd prefer that all cygwin questions should go to
cygwin@cygwin.com?  I can't remember...
