[nycbug-talk] Cron management

I have a setup that is using puppet for system management/configuration,
including crons. It works well, except that many of the devs have
requested access to add/edit/delete crons (95% of our crons are
unfortunately for site-related code and DB related tasks).
There are two options I have:
- Give every dev access to our puppet server and access to change puppet
configuration (not really something I want to do).
- Setup a single cron inside puppet that runs every minute, and then
somehow setup a "task management system" that can execute multiple tasks
using that single cron.
Are there such systems as the last one I mentioned, perhaps web and
mysql/php based, where the dev's could create new "tasks" to run, and a
single cron running every minute would execute those tasks when needed?
