A week later AdRotate is still not available via the WP repositories.

We posted 3 tickets on wordpress.com asking what the status is and also filed complaints in those tickets. All have been ignored so far.
We’ve spend hours searching for a way to contact anyone related to the repositories. No contact information is available.
We’ve tried to contact support people from wordpress.com directly, they have no listed information to contact them outside the ticket system that we could find.
We’ve tried re-registering the plugin in the repositories. The name has been taken (obviously!)

We posted on the overcrowded WordPress forums (here) earlier today in the hopes someone will pick up on it. We have little hope.
We’ve emailed Matt (the main WP guy) directly. His site says he’s busy and replies are slow. We have no hope that he’ll get back to us in time.
We’ve posted on Matts Facebook wall complaining about the sad state of affairs. We expect little of this.

So now we ask you! The user. Should we stir the beast some more? Just sit angry and wait? Could you make some noise? Post on your blogs, your twitter, your Facebook…
Ask for a better support platform, notifications and most importantly to get AdRotate back in the repositories!

This is getting really frustrating. Countless hours we have spent to make this great plugin.
All to be squashed by one guy who can’t find a forum. A guy who isn’t even related to us, to automattic or anything near it.
Don’t let this be the end of AdRotate and make some noise!

Thanks in advance for any efforts!
