I am trying to upload a new release to Splunkbase. After uploading the file, splunkbase is performing some type of package validation. Usually, this validation is very quick. Today (Jan 10, 2018), the package validation appears to not complete at all. I get a message with a spinner that "Package validation is in progress", but, it never returns.
I waited over 10 minutes after upload for this to resolve. Manual package extraction worked, so the package is not corrupted.
I noticed the same thing last night, actually. It was very slow. I actually don't know how long it took to complete, as I just left it open until the morning and it was done. Not sure if you can just check back after a while.
