Either places are fine for me, whatever is the easiest to do and
maintain in the future.
We could also consider having it on datagrepper01 (which iirc is off
freeze) and move it to bapp02 after freeze, that would give us a little
more flexibility in case we face unexpected bugs in deploying the cron.
Now that the freeze is over, should we proceed?
The remaining questions were: where and how often? Suggestions?
