I have to pay a $5 fee to publish a Chrome extension? Srsly? I don't even want to publish it, I just want to distribute it to my org without everybody having to put their fucking browsers in "developer mode", jesus.
Do note that they might just reject it with no explanation. This happened to me when I tried to publish the servercooties extension. The only clue I have is that Opera did the same, but they actually told me why it was rejected. Whether Google had the same reasoning I don't know, and good luck finding out.
