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+?
