Package: exim4-base
Version: 4.86-3
Severity: wishlist

Dear maintainer,

exim4-base depends on
"cron | cron-daemon | anacron | fcron",
but fcron has been removed from the archive in 2011;
so I guess it can be trimmed from depends.

This will trim debcheck repport and may
help to find real problems.


Greets & thanks again for adding cron-daemon back then !
