The renewals command is intended to be run as part of an automated script run at least once a day. It will
recognize revenue for past periods (see ledger).
extends active subscriptions
create charges for new periods
trigger expiration notices
Every functions part of the renewals script are explicitly written to be
idempotent. Calling the scripts multiple times for the same timestamp
(i.e. with the
--at-time command line argument) will generate the
Charge only once.
Example cron setup:
$ cat /etc/cron.daily/renewals #!/bin/sh cd /var/*mysite* && python manage.py renewals
