Gravity Update GUI frequency

Hey Guys,

I think it would be great if we could choose the gravity list update frequency in the Web Admin panel. The lists seem to be updated every few hours, manually updating them is a pain.

Gravity is updated weekly on Sunday, between 3 am and 5 am your local time, at a random time installed as a cron script during install. The weekly interval is chosen with regard to overloading the blocklist servers, and considering the number of changes made to blacklists in a given week. Here is an example script that runs at 3:09 am local.

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1703 Sep 15 18:12 /etc/cron.d/pihole
   9 3   * * 7   root    PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/bin/" pihole updateGravity >/var/log/pihole_updateGravity.log || cat /var/log/pihole_updateGravity.log

If you change your blocklists from the web admin GUI, the “save and update” selection box updates gravity to incorporate your current set of lists.
