[Mailman-Users] qrunner CRON jobs

Look at the actual crontab. I believe there's a default entry which you
could use as an example. In fact, checking mine (which I commented out):

# Every 5 mins, try to gate news to mail.  You can comment this one out
# if you don't want to allow gating, or don't have any going on right now,
# or want to exclusively use a callback strategy instead of polling.
#0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /usr/local/bin/python -S

You can see how the entries are set up. When all else fails, why not read up
on cron and familiarize yourself with it. It's definitely not mailman
specific and useful to know... man pages are a good start.

Here is what's in my mailman crond

# Retry failed deliveries once per minute.
* * * * * /usr/bin/python -S /home/mailman/cron/qrunner

How would I change this to retry failed deliveries say, once per 5 minutes?

    This is usually an indication that your qrunner can't complete a full
runwithin 60 seconds (the default time interval between qrunners).  Try
runningyour qrunner task manually and see how long it takes.
b. How do I prevent it?
    Adjust the crontask and give it a larger interval.--W | I haven't lost
my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
