Enhancement Request: set a maximum interval

Issue #56 new
Channing Walton
created an issue

I use org-drill to help me keep musical pieces I've learned on the piano. Having the interval grow without bounds, even if I set org-drill-learn-fraction to a low value, isn't the best option for that and I need to practice regularly. So I would like to set a maximum number of days for the interval.

    Try this.

        (setq org-drill-max-interval 60)
        (defun org-drill-smart-reschedule (quality &optional days-ahead)
          "If DAYS-AHEAD is supplied it must be a positive integer. The
    item will be scheduled exactly this many days into the future."
          (let ((delta-days (- (time-to-days (current-time))

            ;; halved, meaning you will end up reviewing it twice as often.
            ;; Useful for entries which randomly present any of several facts.
            (weight (org-entry-get (point) "DRILL_CARD_WEIGHT")))
