i had submitted my regexplugin for verification to get accepted in plugin portal's update center, following the steps described by geertjan in his blog post .
i had requested it on june 6th and it has been just 2 days. i understand such process takes time.
but there was no way of getting notified when you get any acceptance / rejection. no updates of any status change. not email nor rss.
so created my own way:
i just created a dapper.net dapp , which scrapes that page and checks for updates periodically. it checks every hour if any of the status fields have "go", and will email me whenever there is a change.
you can use the above dapp to even put a badge showing your plugin's status update on your blog, or add it to your feed reader as rss ;)
it has variable input field for plugin verification page, so you can use above dapp for any plugin..
just my 2 cents.
i just received an update notification by email ;) .. take a look:
you asked to be alerted when:
any occurences of "verification status" equal "go"
you can see the page that met these conditions here:
/pluginportal/faces/pluginveri ficationpage.jsp?verification _id=10316
the fields that met the conditions had the following values:
you can manage your alerts at:
thank you for using dapper!
