Scheduler: Allow execution using "at"-daemon
|Priority:||Should have||Due date:|
|Target version:||Core - 6.0.0|
An alternative to regularly executing the scheduler via cron is now to execute it by using the "at"-daemon. That daemon allows the scheduler to reschedule its next invocation by a simple command. If "at" is available on the system and allowed to be used by the webserver-user enabling this new mode allows to use the scheduler without further configuration. Invocations will be automatically scheduled using at according to the activated scheduler-jobs. Changing or disabling jobs will automatically reschedule the next invocation as needed.
To activate simply set "useAtdaemon" to 1 in settings of the scheduler-plugin. Make sure the at-daemon is available and suffient rights for using it exist.

I guess "Core API" (though it has something to do with "interfacing with the outside world") is not right for documentation for the scheduler. Please move this doc-issue to an appropriate subproject/category.

Indeed, this belongs to the Scheduler's manual, so it is still a Scheduler issue.
