Subject Removing locks for Crons
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2015 18:42:29 GMT

As I mentioned on our IRC meeting today, I want to remove locks for cron
jobs. All cron operations are atomic (create, update, kill, deschedule)
which makes creating locks unnecessary. Locks currently mean that if there
is a failed operation on a cron job, a user must run `aurora job
cancel-update` to release the lock before attempting again. This is a
pretty poor UX if operations on crons are atomic.

I have filed AURORA-1286 <> to
track this. Please voice your concerns on this thread or on the ticket.

Bill mentioned on IRC that locks might die out naturally as a result of
removing the client side updater but I would like to get this change done
