Wow, this plugin repository is weird.
I just submitted for this plugin to be hosted on the repository.
And after doing it I realized that it's an approval process!? I just put in the plugin url as my website.
Well, that's not going to help because there is no plugin there. So there isn't anything for them to approve.
And there doesn't appear to be any way to delete the request. And no clear link to communicate with the people approving it.
So I'm posting here, wherever here is. In a new topic for a plugin that will never get approved that I can't delete and re-add properly.
Clear as mud.
I was thinking that I would just sign up and receive a repository link. And then be able to start uploading.
So that's great. If I can't do that then how does this work. Every time I want to share a plugin with the community in order to get the ability to update my plugins on my sites through the normal update mechanism I have to submit and wait?
It seems like at least wordpress could offer private subversion or easy to setup third party server locations that are called during update. So that you can use the update mechanism and also server clients in a timely manner.
I don't know why things are designed this way, but it is definitely a roadblock to getting things done.
Or is there something that I missed?
