I'm not talking about pushing the catalogs, I'm talking about getting
info about a bad upload during the upload, the same thing you have
brought up earlier.

If the database contained everything needed for a catalog to be
generated directly from it one could be created temporarily, checked
by chkcat and the result could be returned to csw-upload-pkg. With the
new chkcat I think this could be done in 1-2 seconds per catalog max.

This has nothing to do with the actual creation of official catalogs,
they could still be generated from a cron job.
