At first I too was disappointed at the fact that the QA-process took much longer than 6-8 days. If I program 5 games next year, all of them will get published (assumig that everything that should be is ok). The longer QA-process does not effect on my programming or my time tables. There is only on couple of weeks offset between submission and publishing. Why is it so important that your apps gets published in 6-8 days and not in 30 days (I understand the exception in seasonal apps, but in general). You can start working on next project once you submit your app. The sales are not that huge that anybodys life is going to flip around from 3 weeks sales.
Are we forgetting that Nokia is doing us I huge favourite by letting us publish with out any initial expences (ok, 1€). I feel sorry for the QA-people who are working their butt off (FOR US) because bosses are lurking behind shoulders due to the complaints. I believe that they are taking steps towards faster QA-process but adjusting to changing situations takes time in large companies.
Ok, start throwing your stones
