We have just noticed that our rancid cron job was not running, and therefore
the devices were not being backed up.  Does anyone know of a way that you
could get this to email when rancid has run, wether it changed anything or
not, so that we at least get a notification that this has run.


Hopefully with this being the case, we should be able to notice if it's not
working again, and sort it a lot sooner than the month or so that it took to
notice it this time.


Alternatively, if anyone knows of a way to get the cron job to mail a
successful/unsuccessful run of rancid-run, then this would also be useful.


Thanks in advance.
