cubicweb #1503389 long-running background tasks [rejected]
Some actions started by a user thru the gui take much longer to complete than would be reasonnable to make that user wait for feedback.
The best option is to return immediatly with a page stating that the action was started and is in progress, while launching a background task that will change the entity or its state after it is completed.
The trab team has something like this working in their application. Get them to write a CWEP-0003 about it and port it upstream to CubicWeb itself.
