The last paragraph says:
"To configure cron entries with Buildout, you can use z3c.re.backup (http://pypi. python.org/pypi/collective.rec.recipe.usercrontab)."
This should be corrected to the following:

What you will learn from this book
- The basics of Plone site administration
- Installing Python, Distribute, Buildout, PIP, Plone, and more
- Changing the appearance of your Plone site with freely available, professional-looking themes
- Automating maintenance tasks to keep your site running smoothly with less effort
- Securing, backing up, and monitoring your Plone site
- Maximizing the performance of your Plone site by applying various site optimization techniques
In the past few years, we have seen some dramatic changes in the way Plone sites are being developed, deployed, and maintained. As a result, developing and deploying sites, changing their default settings, and performing day to day maintenance tasks can be a challenge.
This book covers site administration tasks, from setting up a development instance, to optimizing a deployed production site, and more. It demonstrates how-to perform these tasks in a comprehensive way, and walks the user through the necessary steps to achieve results.
We have divided the subject of Plone site administration into three categories: development, deployment, and maintenance. We begin by explaining how a Plone site is built, and how to start using it through the web. Next, we add features by installing add-on products, focusing on themes, blogging, and other common enhancements. After the basics of developing and deploying a Plone site are covered, the book covers the basics of maintaining it.
Further, throughout the book we preview some new technologies related to Plone site administration, available now as add-ons to the current Plone release. Finally, we will cover a variety of techniques to help you optimize your site's performance.
This book presents a modern, customizable approach to keeping your Plone site running smoothly.
This book is a step-by-step tutorial guide, explaining many common and fundamentally important Plone site administration tasks.
Who this book is for
This book is designed for site administrators, webmasters, or content editors managing a site with Plone. These users will not be new to Plone itself, but they will be new to the site administration tasks. The reader is also expected to know basic Python programming. This book caters to these users, and builds their confidence by helping them to get their Plone sites up, running, and customized with minimal peripheral knowledge.
