Very long extension moderation process

    I just want to post my opinion about very long moderation process for extensions.

    I submitted GNOME Shell integration extension for moderation one week ago and it's still in "Awaiting moderation" state.

    To compare, same process (as I think - automated) in Chrome Store takes several minutes and in Mozilla addons - several seconds.

    In 2 weeks I plan to release new version of extension. Will moderation process of new extension version takes a week+?

        I am sorry, but could you say when my extension will be looked through because I have the same problem.

          If you read 1st message that you must know that my extension was submitted a week ago from 15 Aug - that is 8 Aug. Today is 18 - that is 10 days in total. Which holidays did you mean?

            Will moderation process of new extension version takes a week+?

            Thanks.

            AFAIK, yes. Even more than that.

              Sadly for Opera users. Thanks for answer.

              Hope Opera will improve time of moderation process.

              When I submitted my extension, it took one day. So as @leocg says, I think it's because of vacations.

                  As Opera moderators really check extension's code, looks like the more code your extension has the longer moderators will review it.

                  I have 2 small extensions and their review usually takes moderators 1 day. Minimum it took half a day and maximum - 3 days.

                      So far it's over a month for me. The Mozilla team also goes through the code and these days it takes a day worst-case. Chrome is 45 minutes. Safari was slow too, but they've stepped it up with App Store integration. The reason I'm submitting is via a user's request for Opera support, and Opera really isn't doing itself many favors here, IMO.

                            To say the truth - I was wrong. Mozilla's moderation process is longer. For now I'm waiting more than a month for Mozilla's review.

                              I am having the same moderation delays on both Opera and Mozilla. I am wondering if anyone here from Opera Tech support can shed some light on the delays?

                                      I am having the same issue. Firefox: 3wks Opera: 2wks And it is not done yet

                                      Chrome: 30min

                                      Maybe that is one of the reasons Chrome has 80% of marketing share. If the excuse to have such a long review process is increase security I cannot see Opera and Firefox more secure than Chrome !

                                            In Firefox the moderation process is also pretty slow but at least they display a review queue position, so you get an idea how long it will probably still take.

                                            Is there any way to contact the guys who are responsible for the review directly?

                                                I submitted updates to my two extensions on Saturday 2017-06-17. They were approved and published two days later, on Monday 2017-06-19. "It works for me."
