I have rewritten the sourceballs script from scratch. It should be like
over 9000 times faster now. For details see my commit message at

The script run every 8 hour and sends a list of added, removed and
especially failed packages to arch-notifications. The dbscripts are in
dryrun mode for a little while. Please have a look at those mails and
let me know if there is something wrong. (Only look at the recent two
mails; the others were test mails)
