Question about upcoming porthatons

I've got one question about BlackBerry 10 Community and Android Port-A-Thons, both scheduled for January. Because BlackBerry Wolrd server gets clogged during the submission period and connection is very slow and there are few steps during creation of new product that are slow even if very fast internet connection is used, getting qualified for Dev Alpha is almost impossible. Is it allowed to submit apps in draft mode before the official beggining of the porthaton and submittin release for review during the porthaton? And also, which timestamp is recorded, the one when new product is created or when release(.bar package) is uploaded and submitted for review ?   

 

Thanks.

Re: Question about upcoming porthatons

I would like to know the answer as well, It would be easier if we could submit drafts then upload the BAR files on the day.

Re: Question about upcoming porthatons

A lot of apps that are going to be ported to BB 10 are already in App World (PlayBook versions). So just adding a new release (upload of BAR) should be enough during port-a-thon.

In short - yes, you can.

Re: Question about upcoming porthatons

not really sure with the one who answered that. another RIM staff answered also it's about the submit for review button not about the bar files

Re: Question about upcoming porthatons

Submit for review button is supposed to be pressed after you upload the bar file :smileyhappy: So it is actually the same :smileywink:
