Disclaimer: I like DevBukkit for the most part and have not felt a need to use the forum for any part of my plugin releases so far. However I have some questions about how the file upload review process works. Consider a project that has had several stable releases and has author(s) that have shown themselves to be competent coders that respond to important problems in their plugin when necessary. Why does every file release for such a project need a (potentially lengthy) review? I can understand reviewing the first couple releases to make sure the plugin is at least of reasonable quality, but after a plugin has developed a reasonably-sized user base, why is there this significant lag between release and getting it out to users? My other issue revolves around the review process itself: what does it accomplish? I ask this not in a complaining tone; I am just looking for a little insight into what takes place when a file is reviewed. Is it actually downloaded and tested in some way? Are potential security issues (hidden backdoors and the like) looked for? If not, what is the review for? Is it just verification of stuff like the changelog to make sure it looks ok? I am aware the DevBukkit mods are volunteers but the lag time to review files seems to be increasing, and I am wondering if there is some reason for this beyond "our mods are busy". Thanks!
