There is a “Show Status Log” button in Organizer which does an update check on apps waiting for Notarization. That helps a bit.

Looking like Notarization adds Mac App Store-like uncertainty to the direct to customer release process. Workflow: submit via Xcode, receive acknowledgement which says wait for a notification, then no feedback. Will the wait be an hour? Three days? New site for that?

Looking at a front door peephole magnifier makes me think it’s basically an analog Ring.

TIL: My Mom was born on National Doughnut Day. Happy Birthday, Mom! Happy National Doughnut Day, too!
