If you bothered what orange / red / yellow color of Pending Review mean in Web Store Developer Dashboard. You are in a right place.
Firstly, there is no official documentations about that. So everything what is below is just an assumption.
Our story case
- We put an extension in an update on December 3rd
- It was in “Pending Review” status for 4 days.
- Last 2 days “Pending Review” font color was changed to orange.
- Update finally got published on December 7th
And we got a lot of similar stories, except one… We have orange label “Pending Review” for about half a year… You decide what to think.
It seems that the colour means automatic vs manual review process.
Black Pending Review – automatic process
Orange – manual process
