I used to run a similar cronjob to create daily spamassassin deb
packages. It was suggested at the time that I use one of the other
i386 machines and then copy my results to gluck (I think I used
tippett, which appears to be dead atm). Here, however, what you've got
is relatively minor in comparison, so I suspect it's fine. If you plan
on doing stuff that's a whole lot more elaborate, you might want to
consider it though.
