      Description

      An issue that I'm sure we all struggle with on a regular basis is the time limitation imposed by features all over Moodle.

      Thankfully we usually make good use of out time constants, including MINSECS, DAYSECS, WEEKSECS, YEARSECS, DAYMINS, and HOURMINS. As a result we should be able to increase these values and reduce the time pressure that all users experience.

      Whilst this may be a break from standard times as typically defined, I believe that these modest increases will be well received and lead to a significant increase in productivity. With enough momentum we should be able to convince other organisations to follow suit.

      We still need to raise an RFC with the IETF to open this for comment, and provide a migration plan for those on the old system, but this proposal puts Moodle at the heart of a Working Candidate for approval.
