SocialProfile - Create a maintenance script for updating TopUsers for site system administrators
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Special:GenerateTopUserReports isn't nearly as automated as it should be. It can't be fully automated (@ashley can provide more info on that), so the next best thing is to provide a maintenance script that site system administrators can run a cron job weekly or monthly, depending on the value of $wgUserStatsTrackMonthly / $wgUserStatsTrackWeekly. This script should ideally be in SocialProfile/maintenance or SocialProfile/UserStats/maintenance.

SamanthaNguyen moved this task from Backlog to Feature Request on the SocialProfile board.

We'll also want to provide documentation on https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SocialProfile as well as sufficient code comments in the maintenance script file so that sysadmins will know how to run it properly and that it exists (ideally, features should be documented)

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!
