What a waste of time, I give up. I have deleted my extension - I'm sticking to real browsers.

to shorten publishing time and deal with the long moderation queue we will introduce soon auto-moderation process. With that change you will be able to release your extension quicker and gather feedback from real end users.
Right now we are in testing phase, so please help us to improve it and adjust for yours and ours needs.
When internal testing of auto-moderation will pass our expectations, we will make it publicly available during incoming weeks.
Thank you for your support.

@tprockow That's very good to know.
I went ahead and tried going through the upload process but always got into the queue. I went as far as deleting my extension entry and trying with a new one (since it was never published in the first place, anyway).
An annoyance: the displayed warnings are really off the mark and can easily be bypassed.
As in, just because I have an svg in my extension, it complained about
http://www.w3.org/2000/svgnot being in the manifest.
Because I'm using Rollup as a bundler and support other browsers, I don't have
chrome.notificationsdirectly in the bundle — it shows up as
const t = (chrome || browser); t.notifications.create(...), so Opera complains that I'm not using any of the requested permissions. Adding a
chrome.notifications.get || chrome.storage.local.get;anywhere is enough to suppress it.
https://*.domain.com/, so it complained that
https://specific.domain.com/wasn't in the manifest.
https://specific.domain.com/, so it complained that
https://specific.domain.comwasn't in the manifest (and this url was never hit anyway! it was just in the code to create links!).
I'm really only going through these because some users have been dying to have my extension on Opera, but, as a completely free extension with zero upsides for me, there's just no justification for trying to get into this browser if this process isn't improved.

This is a joke. Since 1 year ago all extensions are stopped in Opera.
Neither updates or new extensions.
It's impossible to work to Opera this way...
I have extensions with over 1 year of waiting. Will the users wait that amount of time for an update? No, they will just switch to Chrome or Firefox where the approval is in 1 hour.
This way I must conclude that Opera is close to decease...
Please do something

Same problem, the latest version of my extension - 2.6 - (https://addons.opera.com/fr/extensions/details/page-shadow/) is awaiting moderation since the 31 october of 2018. The previous versions I have sent (2.3, 2.4 and 2.5) haven't been published (I sent the 2.3 version on 1 december of 2017 !).
Please do something !

What about moderation guys? Added more extension Dec 3, 2018. Nothing happens

Why not close opera add-ons and just allow users to install Chrome extensions by default, same as Vivaldi does? This is not respectful both towards creators and users. Lack of comments and replies to this topic by Opera representing people is not acceptable.

Hi, Ii'm waiting more than week for moderation to publish extention update.
How much time does it usually take?

I don't think ranting here will improve the situation. As you can see, tprockow wrote a couple of posts back Opera are working on auto moderation, which indicates they are aware of the problem.
