Almost. Doing a clean check-out would mean to provide my SF private
key to the cronjob, which I'm not willing to do. Instead, I download
the CVS repository snapshot, unpack that, and do a local checkout.

There have been comments that the SF CVS snapshot might not be
generated every day - I'll have to check that.

OTOH, I can easily add "common" branches to the set of tarfiles that I
produce - let me know if you need anything that I currently don't
produce (as long as disk space allows it).
