Yes, it is on download.osgeo.org. It is currently run once a day:

[neteler at xblade13 ~]$ crontab -l
10 05 * * 0-6 sh /home/neteler/osgeo4w_versions.sh
10 05 * * 0-6 sh /home/neteler/osgeo4w_versions_test.sh

We can run it hourly or whatever, let me know.
Feel free to hack the scripts or tell me what needs to be fixed.
