0001944: use a random time for hourly updates
clamav-updates are scheduled to run
   hourly at nn:01

all endian-boxes around the world update at the same time putting a high load on the clamav-servers - 24x a day - 7 days a week :-)


putting a random minute to crontab will change the "peak-load" to be flattended

first number (minutes) in fcrontab to be in 00-59 range

01 * * * * [ -x /bin/run-parts ] && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly
^^

gui and translations will need an update on implementation
No tags attached.
