Thanks, I also had a look at the "container functionality". 
Unfortunately using containers or installing the dmd.deb package 
is rather slow compared to the script.

The complete runtime of the job is about 17 seconds by using and about 60 seconds for using the container / 
installing the dmd.deb package.

Kind regards
