The handbook won't cover it in detail since it's not part of base, but there is
a nice tutorial here:
It also comes with good man pages, of course.

Learning about periodic(8) (from both the man pages and reading through
/etc/defaults/periodic.conf) would also be a good idea. There is a weekly task
that checks for out-of-date packages.

I CC'd the list since I assume you meant to reply to it and not just me directly.
