Quietly buried in the Apple Developer News feed on December 30th, this is the entirety of the text:
iTunes Connect is now available after the holiday shutdown. Please remember, if you need to appeal an app rejection or request that the review of your app be expedited, the fastest way to get help is to contact the App Review Team through the Contact Us form. To view app rejection details and ask for clarification, visit Resolution Center in iTunes Connect. We look forward to seeing the innovative new apps you’ll create in 2015.
I can’t tell whether this is a mea culpa for the recent app-review turmoil or a passive-aggressive threat. It’s weird either way.
