Send cronjob mail to the user who signed up a locker by default Previously, we set up crontabs to send mail to lockername@mit.edu. This was fine when scripts didn't support non-user lockers. It's not necessarily a fine assumption in the case of group lockers that the address is appropriate (or even exists). We could send mail to the scripts user, but that only works if the user is signed up for mail_scripts. Instead, we'll default it to the user who signed the locker up for cron_scripts (the same logic mail_scripts uses for the initial procmailrc) and tell them to change it if it should go elsewhere when they set up their crontab. Also move the crontab template to bin instead of deploy so that it can be under revision control. Finally, correct a whitespace error in the ASCII art (reported by kaduk).

19
20#  * * * * * command to be executed
21#  - - - - -
22#  | | | | |
23#  | | | | ----- day of week (0 - 6) (Sunday=0)
24#  | | | ------- month (1 - 12)
25#  | | --------- day of month (1 - 31)
26#  | ----------- hour (0 - 23)
27#  ------------- min (0 - 59)

29# For example, the following cron line would write "Work harder!" to STDOUT
30# every 20 minutes from 8am - 5pm on weekdays
31# (and this message would thus be e-mailed to the address above on each run)
32
33# 0,20,40 8-17 * * 1-5 echo "Work harder!"
