Hi David

Actually they're not. At least not if you're using the Debian package 
installation as I assume.

What you are probably looking for are the scripts in 
"/etc/cron.d/koha-common", "/etc/cron.daily/koha-common" etc.

There you'll see the scripts for cronjobs are actually in directory

This is not a cronjob. You run this once you have loaded your title data 
and your authority data.

You'll find it in directory "/usr/share/koha/bin". More information 
about this can be found here:

Hope this helps.
