Yes, I run it from the command line.

I get listing of croantab.in file.

Yet, I just changed the time to 30 10 ..

In Defaults.py I have GZIP_ARCHIVE_TXT_FILES = 0, but now I see that in
crontab.in it is stated that it should be defined in mm_cfg.py.

Is this a problem?

Now, I just checked and see that the crontab file which was installed
today at 10AM, run at 10:30AM as specified in it.

However, only public archives is re-indexed, while private is not.

But, it's one step closer :-)

What to check next?
