NAME
     weekly, weekly.conf -- weekly maintenance

DESCRIPTION
     The /etc/weekly script is run, by default, every Saturday morning on a NetBSD system.  The
     /etc/weekly.conf file specifies which of the standard weekly services are performed.

     The variables described below can be set to ``YES'' or ``NO'' in the /etc/weekly.conf file.
     The default settings are in the /etc/defaults/weekly.conf file.  (Note that you should never
     edit /etc/defaults/weekly.conf directly, as it is often replaced during system upgrades.)

     rebuild_locatedb  This rebuilds the locate(1) database, /var/db/locate.database, which must
		       also exist, in order to be rebuilt.

     rebuild_mandb     This rebuilds the apropos(1) database /var/db/man.db, using makemandb(8)
		       with the -f option.

     rebuild_whatisdb  This rebuilds the whatis(1) database(s).  Note that NetBSD provides a
		       default whatis.db for the system manual pages and this may not be needed.
		       (Adjust your /etc/man.conf as necessary; see man.conf(5) for details.)
