Emacs source snapshots

Hello, is it possible to provide frequent source snapshots of the
Emacs source tree? For example once a week? The git tree from github [1] [2] is 
currently > 700 mb, its getting bigger on each commit and pretty fast. I dont 
know how big the bzr tree currently is. It would be useful for people who dont 
want to get directly involved with Emacs development, but still want a very 
recent version of it. For most these people keeping track of commit history 
doesnt make sense.
AFAIK there is an unofficial repository providing binary packages for Debian 
and Ubuntu packages [3] plus Ubuntu has emacs-snapshot in their universe 
repository but package is from 2009 [4]. Hopefully providing frequent snapshots 
of the sources tree will ease things for everyone as the Emacs sources without 
commit history are ~100mb. Anyone else finds this a good idea?
