If I understand you correctly, you are proposing two features and not one:

1. Scheduled publishing
2. Consumer coordination

I can see how #1 can be quite useful. I believe it can be accomplished using a plugin (and I’ve had some interest
in writing one for a while).

#2 can be very application-specific. Please just use Redis, etcd, ZooKeeper or similar to cover
that part.
