      Description

      The phm script is a script which calculates membership of the particularly helpful moodlers group in Using Moodle. Up to now, the script has been run by me visiting a certain URL. The list of particularly helpful moodlers is then displayed on a page, with any new members identified. I then send new members a message saying thanks for being a particularly helpful moodler which makes people very happy I also add new members' names to http://docs.moodle.org/en/Community_credits

      However, since cloudflare was implemented on moodle.org, it has not been possible to run the script, as it can take longer than 60 seconds and cloudflare's timeout is 60 seconds. Thus Jordan's suggestion is to run the phm script via cron, then email me the results.

      I think that the script only needs to be run once a week, so perhaps an off-peak time can be chosen.

          Hoping it's ok to assign this to you Dan. Also, it seems there's some interest in the forums - http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=197048 - about how PHM group membership is generated. The formula is available on the groups page http://moodle.org/user/index.php?id=5&group=1 and I was wondering whether we could share the script via git?

          Since the phm script is apparently very expensive I've reconsidered and think once a month is sufficient for it to be run.
