I have noticed that there have been no Magento connect approvals for the past 3 days. There are also a few posts around the forums with people complaiining that their plugins have been waiting approval for more than 10 business days.
Does anyone know whats going on at the moment? Is it a technical glitch?
I have tried emailing several email addresses that are listed for the magento connect store, but no responses at all.
Any ideas on how I can get a response or update on when they are going to resume?
No, It's not broken but it is taking more time to review than it used to.
You can follow Magento Connect's Twitter account to get notified when the apporove any new extension: https://twitter.com/magentoconnect
Do you know why ts suddently taken so much longer?
There was only one plugin published in last 4 days when there are usually several published every day.
