      Description

      (15:10:15) david: timhunt: are you aware of quiz_cron() not returning true, hence mdl_modules::lastcron still set to 0 ? Intentional?
      (15:10:43) david: does not matter much as it is set to run @60 (== every minute)
      (15:10:52) david: but
      (15:11:00) timhunt: Grrr!
      (15:11:01) timhunt: No.
      (15:11:08) timhunt: WTF.
      (15:11:21) timhunt: When does Moodlre ely on return true/false any more.
      (15:11:33) timhunt: I thought we were meant to throw exceptions on error.
      (15:11:42) david: well, it just executes at every cron.php execution
      (15:11:56) david: which can't be more often than every minute anyway
      (15:12:14) timhunt: Yes. But still.
      (15:12:15) david: but I can imagine some internal checks against lastcron (to warn admin, for example)
      (15:12:17) david: Yes.
      (15:12:26) timhunt: Would you like to fix this? Or at least file a bug for me?
      (15:12:36) david: willco
      (15:12:45) timhunt: Thanks.

          The solution discussed and agreed with Tim in the chat.

          Does not affect 2.1 and lower.

          The main moodle.git repository has just been updated with latest weekly modifications. You may wish to rebase your PULL branches to simplify history and avoid any possible merge conflicts. This would also make integrator's life easier next week.

          TIA and ciao
