ubuntu-webapps-update-index, adding new regular jobs


Hi all! CCing the Desktop crew again for some help ;)

As part of the webapp autodiscovery/installation cycle through dpkg there is a binary in libunity-webapps (ubuntu-webapps-update-index) which needs to be run at some regular interval (it is based off the results of apt-cache so no sense running it more often than an apt update it seems?).

Where is the right place to put this, and is there existing convention/process?

Note the binary runs as user (so some awkwardness with the apt update mechanism)

Thanks all,

Follow ups
