External Group Blogs cron review
A couple problems with External Group Blogs cron:
1. Up until a few minutes ago, the plugin was available to be activated on any site on the Commons. A few members had gone through and activated pretty much every single available plugin (a different problem!) and the Cavalcade logs show that the imports taking place on those sites are very slow. So the plugin should be hidden for users, and then removed from those sites.
2. The cron routine can be very long running. I'll see what can be done about breaking it into groups or even specific feeds.
