I submitted an extension to the extension warehouse last Saturday. I received the canned response saying that the extension will be validated automatically and then sent for review. No other emails. I decided I would be patient, and wait.
This morning my patience ran out, and I hit the publish button again. I got the similar response, followed closely (4 minutes later) by a Validation Failure due to the automatic system thinking there were rbe or rbs files being in the rbz zip package. Of course, there were none.
Searching the forums I found Why does validation of my extension fail because of encrypted files?, so now I’ve zipped the package using 7zip, and re-published.
I’ve received the email once again saying that I will be notified once the automated review system has completed. There has been no follow up email. Has it stalled? Should I keep trying to publish or will this simply place my extension on the back of the queue?
There is nothing in the status of the extension to indicate that it has progressed any further in the queue.
The published column states ‘Draft’ for the extension.
The Manage Store page has ‘NEEDS_REVIEW’ beside the extension.
