Description

Right now we only display the current queue status overall at https://wordpress.org/plugins/add/

Currently there are 74 plugins in the review queue, 48 of which are awaiting their initial review.	We appreciate your patience.

It doesn't tell what's the current queue status. Is it worth looking into, if there are no plans to roll out a different system hence avoiding any trivial changes to the existing one?

I am interested in writing a patch. Need to know if I should & where to look for?

Sure it did. 74 plugins in the queue, 48 waiting on review. That maths to 26 waiting on a response.

What 'status' are you looking for? That is, rather literally, all we're tracking in that particular aspect of the site.

@Ipstenu Current queue status of the submitted plugin. @dd32 told me why that won't be a accurate number even if we did show it. Slack chat log - https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/meta/p1421684918000264

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing as wontfix.

The ticket was a bit unclear as to what status beyond that which is already displayed was being requested. Via the linked Slack chat log, it seems the desire was to expose a particular plugin's specific position in the queue.

For the reasons @dd32 mentioned in the linked Slack log, as well as others, there isn't much value in this. Knowing the position of a plugin in the queue doesn't provide any indication as to how long it will be before that plugin is reviewed and/or approved. There are too many variable factors, chief of which are the availability of the plugin reviewers and how much effort happens to be involved in processing the plugins tackled by the reviewers during any given session. An initial review generally happens within a few days, so it isn't a drawn out process.
