Hi,

currently, the Harbour QA process is quite frustrating, as problems
are reported one after the other, with a delay of several days
inbetween... reminds me of the old time cobol compilators!

It would be cool if the efforts made by the developper to provide free
native application were a bit more considered.

Ok, I'm talking out of frustration, but I had my app rejected first
because of naming conventions of the app itself (I didn't properly
read the FAQ, but it is not stated either in the app submission page
of Harbour), delay of 7 days, then because of rmp file naming
convention (which I did not find clearly stated except in the
rejection notification - 5 more days). Now I am waiting for next step
(2 days for now...)

I understand this is a lot of work, but what I suggest is :
- - more controls and more information in the app submission page
(testing the naming conventions of at least the files seems trivial)
- - when doing QA, report all problems at once, not just the first one
- - maybe provide a QA tool so that developpers could do this job and
let jolla teams concentrate on real QA (power consumption, security
checks, ...)

Hope this does not sound too demanding...

Best regards,
Franck
