'runmaint' is a shell script for invoking regular jobs. It delivers the output (if any) via mail with a meaningful subject line, greatly simplifies the crontab entry, and ensures the job runs with a fuller environment than is usual in batch mode. Regular jobs each have their own shell script, readily edited and meaningfully named. It allows for relatively flexible scheduling and cascading of dependent jobs, and lets you amend, add and delete jobs from any machine which can see the maintenance directory instead of having to be on the target machine manually editing the crontab. Runmaint expects to be run out of cron.
