I took part in Ubuntu App Showdown. In the upload app field, I uploaded text file in this format. Was that good enough or did i miss something ?

Referring another similar question, i quote that answer

"There are two "queues" ARB and "commercial/paid". For both the review pending stage takes the longest. This is where the submission is made into a package. If you submitted debian package source (the output of dpkg-buildpackage -S) then this stage will take a very short time. If you didn't follow instructions and submitted a binary deb the process takes MUCH longer as we have to deconstruct and subsequently reconstruct the .deb. If you submit a simple tarball, the packaging process is completely dependent on the complexity of the package."

My tiny application is based on c++ and Qt (haven't used quickly which i regret now). It's already packaged as a debian source package,and is available at the PPA and is successfully built into a binary debian package there. So it should take "very short time" unlike binary deb or tarball.

Can anyone give a rough estimate of how long it would take for completion of "pending review" state ? I'm really sorry for being impatient.

  • I have the same problem, I also made .deb file and I have PPA but I'm waiting for a week.

Mine's been pending review for 2 weeks, 1 day now. Not sure how long it takes it total, but hopefully it gives you some indication to the review length.

  • Ehm, the question is already 3 weeks and 3 days old. I guess he'll beat you ;-)
