Automatically update entries for pending status updates.
Review Request #9171 - Created Sept. 4, 2017 and submitted
This introduces new machinery for automatically updating parts of the
review request page in response to updates from the server. It
specifically targets the new status updates feature, but is built to
eventually allow most or all of the page to periodically update as
Entries can now tell the page that they want to watch for updates, and
supply a polling frequency. The lowest frequency wins, and at each poll
interval, the server will provide metadata and HTML for each requested
entry being polled. If the data is newer than what the page has, it will
update the model attributes and view's HTML appropriately. This can
continue indefinitely or be turned off when needed.
The entries supporting status updates will watch for updates if any
status update is in the pending state, and will stop polling once that's
no longer the case.
Going forward, we'll be able to start moving to this and away from the
last-updated checks, handling dynamic updating of conversations and of
the review request itself in response to changes made in other tabs.
This is a larger project and does not target 3.0, but the foundation is
there for the future.
Unit tests pass.
