I think this should have some check reading the download-logs and
refuse the upload (and perhaps also delete all built files and
blacklisting the requestor for a month), if the generated .deb files
were not downloaded or the signed changes sent in within some absurd
short time making it inplausible the build was actually checked.
Something like a quarter of an hour, I'd suggest.
On a second thought, perhaps better half an hour and also checking the
.diff.gz was downloaded...
