I think there should be separate Android / native QA queues in Harbour and Android apps should be processed only when native apps are all done. The android apps in Harbour are of pretty mixed quality anyway, and the delays in QA are frustrating native app developers. I don't think it's a very good approach. OpenRepos and the Warehouse app kinda saves the day, but then the devs and their audiences need to do a fair bit of extra work.

Edit: As a minimum, the "Estimated hours for approval: 48" on the Harbour homepage should be updated to give it some semblance of reality (7 days?). Maybe we would then know to go to openrepos first instead of wasting time with the Harbour. At least until the process is sorted out.

As confirmed in this mail earlier, it's already like that:
Yes, there's separate queue for Android and native applications. And different testing teams for both.

Well, I don't quite understand why so much priority is given to android apps in the store. Aliendalvik is half-baked, apps crash, it's pretty inconvenient to use (task switching, shared cover closed with first app, instaled apps disappearing)... Why not have 1 QA team and prioritize native apps?
