I agree. I thought of submitting an addon, but frankly I don't
feel like signing up to the mailing list, I'm on too many as it
is, and I forget what all else you have to go through. All my
addon does is reclass a window for a program as a terminal window,
it's literally ripped directly from NVDA source for puTTY, I just
changed the window/program name, obviously. It seems like a lot of
having things just so just to get it approved. I also don't know
how many people would be interested in using it. So it works great
for me for the BBS client I'm using. But it seemed like a bit of a
hassle to get the addon into the pretty specific guidelines wanted

That is almost entirely at the discretion of the add-on developer,
who must submit the add-on for vetting before it lands there. And
many do not want to do this for a variety of reasons.
I have been pushing/arguing/begging for years that the NVDA
Community Add-Ons Page have some option to present Vetted Add-Ons
along with a separate section, or page, for unvetted "home grown"
add-ons created by various community members. The fact of the
matter is that:
1. Many developers do not want to undergo the vetting process.
2. Though vetting is, without doubt, valuable since experienced
developers can examine code for fitness, security, etc., and make
recommendations to the developer for "tying up any loose ends" in
their code, it's not essential. Both the user community and
developer benefit from this process, but it's not essential.
3. There are quite a few add-ons that have been in common
circulation for years that are home grown and unvetted. They work
for those who need the functionality they offer.
4. Users of NVDA are, or should be, perfectly capable of
understanding that listing of an add-on on a separate unvetted/at
your own risk page means just that. NVAccess is not responsible
for anything that happens when one chooses to use those add-ons.
But it's still a service to the community to have a central
distribution point for NVDA add-ons that developers want to place
there, but who do not wish to undergo the rigors of the vetting
One of the many beauties of NVDA is the abundance of add-ons that
have been home grown to address some specific user's need that
could then be shared if the person who created it is so inclined.
But right now there is no place to do that, and making that an
extension of the existing "add-ons marketplace" is what makes
