How is cron actually running?
Hey Patrick -

I just spun up a new private instance with one of the EC2 images - thanks so much for making those available!

I know in order for it to update and do other automated tasks there are scripts in the cron directory that are supposed to be run at specific intervals. I assumed there'd be some crontab entries, but I'm not seeing any. Then I saw a comment you made about how there's no need to hook it up to actual cron, it is triggered automatically as agents poll for work.

Is that still the case? In the context of EC2 autoscaling, how will it ever know to spin up new agents (isn't that managed by the scripts in /cron?) if there's no agents polling to begin with?
