I have been trying to upload a commercial extension to Magento Connect, but it is disapproved by Magento.

I have filled in all necessary information. What could be the reason for the disapproval?

It might be because they’re currently updating Magento Connect.

I hope that is why. I was not able to upload the targz file for about 2 weeks and was finally able to yesterday. So my status got changed from “Not Approved/Incomplete” to “Not Approved”. This seems to me like all the issues with magento connect have been resolved, but the module was just not approved. Why would they not provide feedback as to why things are “Not Approved”?

Same here.
We have a new extension “Indexa_SuperPay” uploaded about 3 weeks, but nothing changed until now (the status stays as “Not Approved").
I have just sent a DM to @magentoconnect via Twitter. Maybe you can do it also?

Best Regards.

I have tried to contact Magento to receive more detail as to why a module was not approved and have not received a response in 3 weeks. I love Magento, but it should not take over a month to get a module released. The other thing is, I don’t have a problem with Magento not approving a module, but there should be some kind of feedback from them as to why it is not approved. Do they feel it was poorly coded, lacking core functionality, or do they just not want the functionality released for Magento. Something would be nice.

I’ve experienced same problem.

Now the only error I have is the following

* Release file already exists.

Now my question is: how can I delete an extensions from my connect account?

RE: “release file allready edists”, I believe if you update the version of your module and create a new targz file and try uploading that one then it should work. I think what was happening was the files did not get uploaded but the system saved the version of the module. So if the version is 0.1.0 change it to 0.1.1 and try uploading it.

I do not see any way to delete an extension. You may just have to put a message on the modules page saying it is not supported any longer.

Past days I’ve tried this solution but with no luck...I’ll try again!

I hope the new Magento Connect system will be improved under this aspect, too!

Thanks for your reply.

Looking at the screenshot, have you taken it upon yourself to go and fix plus release my crappy YahooFinance currency rates integration? If so, great!

ahh~~,
Is it your code ?
I simply have packaged to extension it.
and it has uploaded for the sake of test distribution-process before develop real-extension.
Why is it crappy ? It works without any problems.
Would it be possible for you provide me with additionally information ?

Yes, I was the original coder of that, way back around Mage 1.2 ish.

I mean crappy as many people who had updates to 1.4 said it no longer worked. I\’m still in 1.3 land so I couldn\’t vouch for it anymore and indeed never bothered to package it up properly, relying on my manual install instructions in the Wiki for people to make use of it. Aside form that unorganised and outdated state, it\’s not crappy in what it does. If you cleaned/tidied it up and verified it works in later Mage versions, then that\’s great. Will sort out a number of people.

I know quite a few people have subscribed to the original thread about my efforts here:

http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/32253/P30/

Perhaps you can tell them all that you have packaged it up, and the other things you\’ve done with it.

EDIT: I see that forum is closed for new posts.

Perhaps you can explain what you did in the Wiki instead:

Hi,
I’ve followed as it the link below.
http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/5_-_modules_and_development/using_yahoo_finance_for_currency_exchange_rate_retrieval

and then,
I additionally applied a code referring the currency rate adjustment feature of system config before “return (float) $exchange_rate * 1.0”

That’s all.

It has well been working since magento v1.4.0.1
I’m using currently magento v1.4.1.1 with 43 currencies except 5 currencies and it is also worked on magento v1.4.2.0

You’re great !

Hello Magento Team,

We already added many extensions and themes to magento connect.

Last month, We tried to add 10 magento themes to magento connect and all of theme got \"Not Approved\”

We don\’t know what happening. Could you please give us more clarification about this issue?

In this case, if the extension is not approved then you should contact the provider and provide more detail about why it not approved.  (Joomla community just do the same way)

Thank in advance!
