Could I work with whomever is currently running test reporting to help increase the frequency and also get some pointers on how best to run the reporting scripts, I don't want to step on anyone's toes.

I just added another runner (the one I mentioned previously that I
wanted to get going on Azure) that goes at :05 after the hour, every
hour. Hopefully that will help things out.
If you want to run separately, I don't think you need to restrict it
to the hours I'm not. Just run at :15 after all hours. It doesn't hurt
to have extra runs in an hour.
I'll try and set up my report generation the weekend, or earlier. And I'll run it at half past the hour, hourly (i.e. 0:30, 1:30, 2:30, etc.).
With Rene's help I should have just posted results for develop. Any estimate of how long it takes from the results upload until they appear on the web page?
Side not.. At some point this year I'll get back to my report generation rewrite and then all this will be irrelevant as the process will then run on Google's servers. But that's still a ways off.
