1. (daily) Add new entries and update mainpage appearance dates and featured/
former status of articles listed in the by-year nomination lists, like Wikipedia:Featured articles nominated in 2007. I do this by looking for new entries in the monthly FA nomination logs under Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Featured log, reading WP:FA, WP:FFA, looking for new entries in the WP:TFA archives, and then updating the by-year lists with any changes or additions.
2. (daily) Update Wikipedia:List of Wikipedians by featured article nominations. I do this by regenerating the entire table from the by-year lists, cross checking current featured status against WP:FA and WP:FFA.
3. (daily) Update the CFD archive indices, including the links to the daily archives at Wikipedia:Categories for deletion/Archive debates and the monthly alphabetical indices.
