New comment by paper42 on void-packages repository

`-s` makes cronie log to syslog instead of sendmail even if sendmail is installed, that's probably not what users expect and it would be a breaking change. A proper fix would be to either add sendmail to dependencies or make a patch which fixes this and submit it upstream. but:

Fedora removed sendmail from dependencies in 2010 and they still don't have it:
> remove sendmail from requirements. If it's not installed, it will log into (r)syslog.
