Add-ons Review Update – Week of 2010/03/30


  • These weekly posts explain the current state of add-on reviews and other information relevant to add-on developers. There’s a lengthy overview of the Add-on Review Process posted in this blog as well.
  • Most nominations are being reviewed within 2 weeks. Our goal is have them all under 2 weeks by April.
  • Almost every update is being reviewed within 4 days. We want to reduce this even more in the future, but nominations are the current priority.

The Review Queues

  • The stats are taken from the latest queue report from last Friday.
  • 61 new nominations that week. 126 nominations in the queue awaiting review.
  • 66 new updates that week. 67 updates in the queue awaiting review.
  • 1296 reviews performed by AMO Editors so far in March. There were 20 editors performing reviews last week.

See the Add-on Review Process and You for information on how to check your current add-on status.

Notes for Developers

Everyone should read Justin Scott’s post on the proposed changes for the AMO sandbox model. This proposal will substantially change the way we see and deal with unreviewed add-ons, and will have a significant impact on all add-on developers. This is not a decision we’re taking lightly, and we need to find a way to provide a safe experience for all of our users.
