Release time for Publishing

Our app is still under review since December 21st, 2016 and we are trying to understand what the time frame is for review and release of our app as it is a component of a large project that needs to be released next week.  Any advice?

Re: Release time for Publishing

From an email Roku sent to developers back in October:

Channel Store blackout notice:
The channel certification process shuts down every December in observance of the year-end holidays. Accordingly, we ask that developers note the following dates:

•  Friday, November 18th, 2016: Submission deadline for channels to be reviewed before the Channel Store blackout begins

•  Friday, December 16, 2016: Channel Store blackout date - No channels will be reviewed, published, or updated after this date

•  Monday, January 9th, 2017: Channel certifications resume as usual

Note also that channels will not be published or updated during the week of Thanksgiving (Friday, November 18th through Sunday, November 27th). Please plan appropriately. - 717-441-4386 - Build a Roku SDK channel in 15 minutes! - Easy Direct Publisher to SDK upgrades!
