I think there should be one somewhere, but as a short summary,
create a file with something like this:
samples=<path to fate suite samples>
fate_recv="ssh fate@<fate server>"

Then in regular intervals run
tests/fate.sh <filename with above>
Not sure where it ends up placing stuff, so probably best
make a copy of fate.sh and place everything in a separate
directory so it doesn't mess up your file system.

Currently http://samples.multimedia.cx/fate-suite/ is probably best.
Not sure if there's rsync available there or at samples.libav.org
