Challenge sign-up summaries aren't displaying

Description

Steps to reproduce

Note: This can only be reproduced on production, and only if the temporary Systems fixed is removed.

Example URL: https://archiveofourown.org/collections/COLLECTION_NAME/signups/summary

  1. Create a gift exchange

  2. Have five people sign up for the exchange

  3. Wait for a Sign-up Summary to appear

What happens

The summary page says "The summary is being generated. Please try again in a few minutes." A summary may appear infrequently.

What should happen instead

The summary should always display.

Why does this happen

Anything that writes to a file and tries to share it will not work properly. We should move that shared state somewhere else, e.g. Memcached or Redis.

https://test.archiveofourown.org/collections/AO3_5382/signups/new <-- if we can get at least 4 more sign-ups, we can at least be sure this bad boy still works

Repeatedly visit https://test.archiveofourown.org/collections/AO3_5382/signups/summary to test regeneration.

  • At 6:43: "Last generated at: Tue 25 Sep 2018 05:53PM EDT"

  • At 7:16: no change which is expected. At 6:43 it hadn't been an hour since the last generation.

  • At 7:33: "Last generated at: Tue 25 Sep 2018 07:15PM EDT"

Looks good.
