Cron job actions not scheduling properly

I added a workflow to trigger every 5 minutes. After I pushed the workflow file, it did not start to schedule for the first few hours. But after that, without any other interactions, the schedule works well except that it is several times per hour instead of exactly once per 5 minutes as is specified in the config.

As was discussed over here: No assurance on scheduled jobs? there is no assurance scheduled jobs will run on schedule and in-fact if they are delayed too much will be skipped/abandon.

Will this be fixed anytime in future? Does Github have plans on fixing this?

Not that I’m aware of :frowning:
