      Description

      The unoconv process is not 100% reliable and this can cause hung cron jobs. If these are killed the task never makes it to the 'delete' line for the assignfeedback_editpdf_queue table and it will be retried.

      We have seen links to documents months old still in this queue. I think it would be prudent to make a check of the age of the document and not convert if it is over a certain age.

      If I understand this correctly it would still convert in 'real time' if required.

      This, like a few other things, would make the service a little more robust.
