It looks like you can get the status of the reviews here:

Of particular interest is I noticed a comment on this one:

It looks like the review process is taking unusually long at the moment as there was some change in the internal tools. As such, I don't think your experience will be typical compared to past review times.

The ARB team is still doing their best to optimize their work, as they are aware of the fact that the reviews take lots of time, and very often it discourages developers. Though as the tools (e.g. MyApps portal) are now more or less ready, I expect things to speed up a bit. However, it is still likely that the process may take several weeks or even months.

Months? It definitely discourage a lot of developers. Either reject or approve should have a time range. – 王子1986 Nov 4 '13 at 23:54
