I've been working for the last few months on a group management tool, that will greatly reduce the effort needed to manage a SG group, by automating as much of it as possible.
Tool current features:
The tool is built to run as a Service, and uses MySql DB to store it's data.
Run time of each command (except UserCheckRules) is less than 1 second.
I'm currently using the tool to manage my own group:https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/jMqJT/quality-games-giveaways-qgg-group-special-gas-life-is-strange-before-the-storm-prey-open
And it's working out well. I have a good overview of what's happening in the group, and a good level of control.
And it takes seconds to check rules compliance, etc.

Sounds nice, but I would guess it will run rather slow until caching is implemented.
Yes, it takes minutes - hours (depending on group size) to run each command.
But when you need unfrequent stuff (like checking monthly GAs, which you only need a couple of times a month), it's not that bad.
I've made some modifications to the tool.
It now runs as a Service, and keeps all it's data in MySql.
Subsequently, most commands take less than 1 second to execute.
In the near future, I'm planning on deploying it on a remote server (probably in AWS) for easier access.
Added response examples.

Wow, I was just thinking about asking you how you were able to run the QGG group, and now I know. :)
