Perhaps.  Right now it isn't (at least the crontab isn't), just
as for other similar tasks running on the system.  I suggest we
let overseers@gcc.gnu.org chime in (CC:ed) to get the bigger
issue out rather than focusing on just this one.  I don't know
about moving all gcc-related cron things to gccadmin, but
perhaps this one can be moved some time.  (BTW, the
maintainer-script repo doesn't have the magic commit-script
things in place to copy the files to the "live" place on
committing, right?  There's a README that says so.)

For thing event in isolation: I don't have authority to write
stuff for gccadmin, but this was a search-related thing and
within things allowed for me.  I wasn't going for doing the
biggest related change I could think of all at once, and am
still not.  Perhaps later.
