Hooks to Schedule the Auto Update

Right now the auto-update runs on the 7s (or there abouts) which I know we picked because it seemed the least damaging for most people. 7am and 7pm local.

If there were hooks that allowed one to schedule the auto-updater, this might make things easier for some people who want more fine-grained control over when an upgrade runs. This would also alleviate some of the fears of Major Upgrades, if one wanted them to run mid-day when people were active and available to fix.

I agree, this sounds like a good idea.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

It's possible for plugins to do this already, the plugin would have to deregister the existing schedule, and re-register wp_maybe_auto_update to occur at the time it wants.

That's not the same as a hook to be able to filter, though. Not sure it's invalid, since the idea was to be able to just filter and change the times, versus rewriting a function.

That's true, but the amount of code they'd have to rewrite is so very minimal that IMHO a filter makes very little sense - they'd get a far better level of control just by avoiding core in the first place.
