Truly it is.

That was my intent, so I grabbed the first pending project and it's
tarball happened to be a tarbomb...  I've recalled just how many times
I've had to deal with that before, so my thought was: "Not again!"

There was some move to write a compliance checker script, so I thought
that this might be a good starting point: the first thing I'd do when
reviewing submission is extracting the tarball, then I would do thing
A and thing B, etc.  There's a lot of automation opportunity here, so
why waste time doing that manually over and over again?

Others may have their own opinion. :-p  I think Alex Fernandez already
answered this rather clearly down this thread.

I didn't say the script is to "replace the review completely," it's
just to "aid in the process."

Sorry man, I didn't want to offend you or anyone else by mentioning
github (oops, I did it again) or any other "competing" project hosting
platform.  I've been pointed in the right direction already, so you
are a bit late here. :-p

Anyway, thank you for reminding me of this.  I have dropped the ball
here, but now I'll work on finding time to work on this again.
