Er, it's not like something is done every 30 minutes unless we've got a
whole heck of alot more security bugs than I think we do.  My guess on
how this works is a cron job run every 30 minutes checks for packages
which need to be compiled in some special place and then goes about
compiling them.  I imagine the security team is the only set of people
who are going to have access to that area and so unless there are
independent people in the security team (which I don't think happens
since I suspect they are all involved or at least aware of current
issues) who upload big packages right after each other, and keep doing
it for a while, it won't be an issue.

Just my thoughts,
