This tool is automagically updated every hour thanks to a cronjob entry in the Toolforge grid.

It's scheduled every hour nearly at XX:41. It means this happens every hour at a fixed minute. The minute was picked randomly, trying to avoid the usual spike that happens at XX:00 in this kind of shared environments.

This is the related crontab -e entry:

# m	h	dom	mon	dow	command
41      *       *       *       *       /usr/bin/jsub -N cron-29 -once -quiet /data/project/itwiki-scuola-italiana/scripts/

This is the content of

cd /data/project/itwiki-scuola-italiana/repositories/
git pull

That's all.
