Currently ~30% of all new plugins are approved within 7 days of submission.
Why so low? People don’t reply to their emails. We have over 100 plugins waiting on replies from developers. At this precise moment (10:30 am US Pacific Time, Sunday April 16) there are ZERO plugins pending review. That means everyone who submitted a plugin between April 1 and today has been emailed.
If you didn’t get the email, please go check your spam. Free email clients like Hotmail, Yahoo, and Google tend to file us as ‘automated’ emails, which is not true, but whatever. Put
firstname.lastname@example.org in your whitelist (actually put
@wordpress.org in a filter to have it never treated as spam and always important) because if you’re not getting emails from WP and you’ve submitted a plugin or a theme, you’re going to have a bad time.
Again. Everyone’s been emailed. I promise. Check your emails. Drop us a line if you can’t find it. Remember to whitelist us.
