Amendments to JED Extension Submission and Approval Processes

Upon submitting an extension, if it is found to have issues that need to be corrected before it can be published; developers will now have 21 days to make any necessary amendments and inform us when they have completed this via a ticket. After this time period, JED reserves the right to remove any extension that still has outstanding issues.

We are currently ironing out a few issues with the development environment and will provide updates on this as soon as possible.

We apologise to anyone who has already signed the JEDCA and has not yet received access to BitBucket. There was a communication issue with the sign up form, which we hope to have corrected as soon as possible. We will soon provide access to those who have already signed.

The next JED team meeting will take place on 24th June 2016 at the same time.
