[Letsencrypt-devel] Bug#834224: certbot cron job depends on perl, change to python as certbot depends on python

Package: certbot
Version: 0.8.1-2~bpo8+1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

the package certbot depends only on python, but the included cron job uses perl to choose a random second within the hour.
Please change the cron job to use python instead of perl, otherwise add perl as a dependency (which looks like overkill to me).

Kind regards
Matthias Bücher
