Spent most of the day building some generic types for scheduling recurring events. Not sure if rolling my own was a good idea, but that's what I did.
In the incrementalfsck branch, I have hooked this up in
which now accepts and parses scheduled events like
"fsck self every day at any time for 60 minutes" and
"fsck self on day 1 of weeks divisible by 2 at 3:45 for 120 minutes", and
stores them in the git-annex branch. The exact syntax is of course subject
to change, but also doesn't matter a whole lot since the webapp will have
a better interface.
