No. We do it in response to the following events:

- significant changes in the R code
- "seems like a while since we last updated R"
- milestones leading up to release (release candidates, alpha, beta, etc). 

You could scrape the build report daily to see if the version of R has changed.

 Also, do you guys grab them as tarballs, or
