Problem #2 (practical): To implement good heuristics, the wizard at
least needs to look into the source tarball (if not run some
commands...). Here comes the problem: 'tar tf foo-1.1.tar.bz2' can take
a *lot* of cpu time, so where to perform such expensive actions?
What is with having an own service for this but handle it via the API ?
We could run this service inside of a chroot or maybe even on a remote
but not necessary on the backend server. This service would work on the
scanning jobs sequential to avoid the DoS. You would need to implement some
kind of waiting procedure in the frontend for this to give the user feedback

Sounds like a good idea - implement the wizard in the API, but have a
separate service (behind the API) to extract tarballs etc. What do the
others think? From an administrative POV - is it possible to get a
(virtual) machine for this? (I know you guys are currently busy with the
storage problems...)

I'm working on it (again), see
