Bug#1030668: dinstall could run more often (every hour?)

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

Dear FTP masters,

could dinstall be run more frequently, for example every hour?

Currently dinstall is run only once every 6 hours. This means that many operations are blocked for a long time. For instance uploading a -2 version after a package has cleared the NEW queue.

Such long delays tend to ruin the development flow, especially of volunteers that happen to have just a couple of hours at their disposal. This is a well known source of frustration [1].

Given that a dinstall run generally takes only few minutes, it should be feasible to run dinstall at least hourly.
