[SailfishDevel] Harbour QA process...

another point for me is a possibility to contact the tester.
A prior rejection reason for an update of my game "Morzyn" was a missing menu button (that was absolutely ok, because it leads to bad usability, so I included one), my last rejection reason was battery consumption when minimizing while the AI players do their move.
This is intended behaviour, but my game was rejected because it consumes 3%-10% CPU while the AI players move (round-based) and the game is minimized (measured by top). When the game waits for the players move, I don't see it in "top". I love to finish my move, switch to my mail folders or read facebook messages while the other 6 AI players make their move.
Another point is that in future I want to include network gaming. Therefore I also want it to run in background. The great thing of Sailfish OS is that one can simply close an app like in the good old desktop days, if you don't want it to consume power.
So now I have no idea how to react on this and just did nothing, because I also have desktop and Android versions to take care of. But I'm not happy that the few users of Morzyn can't profit from the fixes of the update and have to deal with the version in store.
