Clarification on Minify settings (2 posts)

    I have some confusion on the following settings under MINIFY settings :

    #1 Update external files every X seconds

    #2 Garbage collection interval Y seconds

    So the first one shows the interval between updates of my css/js
    The second one is the interval between clearing expired data and updating css/js

    So... to me this sounds to be the same thing?

    When the Garbage collection occurs, does it not re-update the css/js, doing the same as #1 ??

    Also, on a sidenote, whenever the css/js is updated, does it add a new e-tag and #######.css string at the end of the file?

    Or does it Only do this if the css/js has been modified, (there would be no point in caching if this wasn't the case)

    #1 determines how often 3rd party files are downloaded
    #2 determines how often old cache files are deleted from your server.

    They are mutually exclusive operations.
