I have changed the version format slightly, so if someone is using a custom parser for checking updates, it is likely to fail.

Adopted package.

* changed git repository
* PKGBUILD updated according to pacman 4.1 specifications.

Git repository is now at git://github.com/dubiousjim/dcron. The pkgbuild still points to the old site which redirects (and fails) to github.com/dubiousjim.

Fix needed for the /usr move.

there is an inconsistent usage of pid file name:
extra/crond.logrotate: kill -HUP `cat /var/run/cron.pid`
extra/crond.rc: echo "$PID" > /var/run/crond.pid
please note cron.pid vs crond.pid

result:
cat: /var/run/cron.pid: No such file or directory
kill: usage: kill [-s sigspec | -n signum | -sigspec] pid | jobspec ... or kill -l [sigspec]
