Hasn't this been finished already?
What is it?
Specifically a way to invoke Google Cloud Functions
Good feedback, Mani. In this case, I'm inclined to keep them separate, because it's likely that the cron-like task queue piece could be available on a different schedule than the full slate of GAE-like services. I don't have dates to announce, but this is on our roadmap.

This can be integrated with this other issue:
Taking AppEngine services and making them available (or merging into existing services) would increase the overall APIs we can use on GCP and cron-like functionality used in task queues can be available for GCE and GKE too.
Specifically a way to invoke Google Cloud Functions on a schedule and recurring basis. This could be another trigger (schedule).
