We need to process things in the background, and therefore need a framework to make this happen. Tasks might include:

  • Converting image / pdf / ppt uploads
  • Letting plugins, like video content, run background tasks
  • Importing dynamic / external content (RSS, XML, JSON)

I knew it would come to our needing one of these, but we really need to take care that this doesn't become a burdensome requirement for users (in addition to being a dependency with potential for complex installation/configuration). Witness Gitorious...

I'm currently leaning towards Delayed Job which uses ActiveRecord as it's primary datastore. Pretty easy to setup too.
