Why our server apps are not in The Mac App Store
Category : Technology/MacAppStore.txt
I've been asked, why are our apps like MailServe and DNS Enabler not in the Mac App Store?
There's this small matter of rule 2.27 in Apple's Mac App Store Review Guidelines:
In order to configure the mail, web, or DNS server, my apps need to be granted superuser status by the user. There's no other way around it. Or is there? But I can't quite think how. At least for the moment.
Of course, there are the other apps that should probably be OK with the Apple Thought Police. Luca, Liya, etc. But one thing at a time. There's always so much to do and so little time.
