What about running lintian once a day on the new/updated packages of every
day? that way the amount of time spent would be reduced and all the lintian
reports would have a delay of no more than one day.

This is the way I want DEHS to work (it currently takes some hours to
perform the archive wide run). At the moment it updates every day the new
packages and some times a month the big run takes place, but I also want to
add timestamps so a package isn't checked if the last check is less than ~3
days old. Something similar could be done to lintian.

groff was the process taking the most part of the CPU when lintian processed
libwine-dev, is there anything that can be done to reduce this?

I'd be happy to add that, although I don't think I will be running those
archive wide lintian checks on amd64 too often (specially because I have to
download all the .deb because my processor is an i386).
