So inflation gets run once a week according to the docs.
My question is how can you tell when the last inflation was run, and subsequently when the next inflation is eligible to be generated.
Also, according to the docs:
The distribution of new lumens is limited to once a week. Inflation is run in response to an inflation operation that anyone can submit to the network.
My guess is that someone already has a script/service that submits the inflation operation to the network every week, so the day/time in the foreseeable future will basically stay consistent? What is the day/time that this occurs/has occurred?
Are lumens distributed immediately after this inflation operation is sent (like, within seconds)?
I've edited this comment to ask questions specifically about determining when the last inflation was generated/distributed, as the existing question What day of the week does the Stellar network pay out inflation? does not explicitly state a day.
