Submission with _signed

I have submitted my apps with bundle names of version numbers. I have recently received an email that states the best method is: 

 

When submitting your signed app into App World, use the following approach to ensure a speedy review:

  • When submitting the signed app, log into the Vendor Portal.
  • Click Manage Products.
  • Click the + button to add your new Release.
  • Click Add Bundle to create a new Bundle for your signed Release.
  • Enter <bundlename>_signed in the Name field.
  • Configure your Minimum OS to 6.0 and Device Support to only PlayBook.
  • Add your BAR file to the bundle.
  • Click Next and then Save.
  • When ready to submit, click Submit Releases for Review.  Or, at a later time, you can click Send for Review on the Manage Products page.
The question I have is that I have submitted versions without the _signed part on the bundle name, does this matter for my approval speed? Should I submit my .bar again as a new version with the updated bundle name? Can I just reuse the bar file for the previous version or should I compile a new version with incremental version number? 
I really appreciate any help.

Re: Submission with _signed

I was wondering the same thing myself after getting that email.  I don't really know the answer either, so it would be great if one of the RIM guys could chime in.

 

I have a feeling the email was designed to do 2 things:

Alert people that the keys are available in case they didnt know

Try to establish a 'convention' so the review team could easily know if a submitted app were signed or not.

 

the real question is, whether this is a 'convention' or 'requirement'.

Re: Submission with _signed

Don't worry. I send my signed apps yesterday without that _signed text and I get them approved today morning :smileyhappy: If you already send them then it will be ok.

Re: Submission with _signed

Wow now that was a fast approval. Was that from a fresh submission or an updated sign? I caved in and recompiled all my waiting apps resubmitting them with _signed and will keep posted on the approvals. Thank you very much for your advice.
