Sean,

Do you have a support package? They don't monitor this list close, it might
be better to call them over the phone while sending a direct email to
Heather. At least this is somewhat fixable on their side. I remember when I
lost a ton of money when Apple decided that only Obj-C/Cocoa apps would be
allowed on the store at the same time I was supposed to deliver a project.

This kind of setback happens to everyone in the long run when we're using
APIs outside our control. My advise would be to ping RunRev directly while
calling the client, explaining that google deprecated a technology used in
the project and thus it requires an extension.
