  shouldn't depend on cron

Status in popularity-contest package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  For most desktop users, their computer doesn't run more than 1 day.
  Thus cron can be uninstalled and anacron ensures on next startup that
  it will perform the tasks which had past schedule dates.

  The cron task is only in /etc/cron.daily could be processed by
  anacron. Thus the popularity-contest package shouldn't depend on cron
  (but maybe on [cron or anacron]).
