Oh. No, there is no setting for that. It would need a complete redesign.

Yes, that's the problem with this implementation.

one after the other.
You can't, as John asks, determine the time each specific one runs at.
You can only set the time that cron.{daily,weekly,monthly} runs at, and
that to 15 minute granularity.

You can't, as is possible with both the real cron and with the systemd
timer, run something "only on Monday" or "not on weekends" or "on the
last Friday of the month".

If you need that degree of customization, just take those jobs out,
probably by taking out the scripts from the daily folder, and create an
enties for them in /etc/cron.d/mycustom instead, line per line. Not in
/etc/crontab, because that has problems with updates.

But the distribution has to cater for the majority, and what it has is a
compromise that works for most people. As always :-)

For me it works just fine :-)
