Why so large deadline time? Wu takes <12 hours on average CPU. I'd say deadline 1 week is more than ok.

Please keep the deadline the same. I run many different projects and like the flexibility that longer deadlines give. A week is too short, IMO. More than a month would be too long. A month is just right. Good call.

Decision has already been made to bring them down to 2 weeks shortly. A month is far too long. if it takes you longer than a month to run your cache there are some issues.

Figures, 0 Credit + 0 RAC but you think a Month is just right ... Just what Month do you plan to run your Wu in anyway ...

when WU expire after one month, it is not immediately sent, but put into Unsent queue of ~70000 WUs (as of yesterday). So you have to wait more than a month just to get your pending credits!

as for flexibility - just use project resource share.
