Packages that are pushed to undergo a series of validations before they are made publicly available. The purpose of those validations is to ensure security of packages.

Lately, package authors experienced slow validation times. Those times spiked to multiple hours.
There root causes for this can be split into three classes of issues:
1. Live site incidents on side - caused slow validation times and validation failures in December-January. We fixed multiple reliability related issues, and have been stable in this aspect in the past month.
2. Live site incidents on the side of our scanning provider - caused the delays in validation in the last few weeks.
3. Susceptibility to spikes in traffic - we have experienced spikes in traffic from major publishers in the last few weeks. Our pipeline is slow to handle cases when multiple packages are pushed in a short period of time.

To resolve validation delays caused by (2), (3) we plan to onboard to a new scanning provider.
