I have an AppleScript Cocoa application that does a lot of shell scripts like
chflags. Is there any way I can try to send it on review to MAS and get it approved?
According to Wikipedia:
Disallowed types of applications revealed by Apple include new apps that are not sandboxed (as of June 1, 2012). At WWDC 2013, Apple announced that this rule no longer applied, and that so-called "temporary exceptions" may be used when the app has a reason not to be sandboxed.
However, Apple OS X Developer website states that sandboxing is required for Mac App Store.
