Currently Normandy checks for new recipes once every 24 hours. We'd like to change this to once every 6 hours. This will give us faster enrollment and unenrollment from studies.

Why 6 hours? It's mostly arbitrary. My reasoning is that power-of-two steps are nice, and that 6 hours starts to put Normandy into the "answers in one working day" range.

In the future I'd like to increase this further, possibly as far as once an hour. After that, if we still want faster updates, we'd want to explore a push model, or some other execution pattern.
