 Version increment to 3.0.2.

 I would like to bring up again the issue in #1472.

 I don't think that is solved.

 First we don't make it obvious that a text editor is absolutely required
 for fcron to be fully functional.

 There isn't at least a note in the configuration section,like the which
 note in the docbook-utils instructions.

 Although to be honest I don't fully understand this policy,that we have
 only list build time dependencies as required.

 We could easily say in fcron page,like we do in docbook page for the
 optional runtime dependencies.


 {{{
 Required (Runtime dependency only)
 Text editor (default is vi from the Vim-7.0 package)
 }}}

 If a new ticket is needed to document this new policy,just say so.

 If a note is sufficient I believe what Richard says is his first comment
 in #1472 is sufficient.
 {{{
 Fcron needs a text editor to be functional.
 It uses whatever editor is set in the editor variable in /etc/fcron.conf.
 Default is /usr/bin/vi.
 }}}
