Ok, then its all right. I just missed an "overview" of my extensions,
members, etc. I guess members are not relevant anymore (everything is
"public"?). I just found the Extension Keys> Manage Keys> option where
at least I can see a list of my extensions.

I guessed so too, after I saw my extension coming public some minutes
later. I thought "whew, the security team IS fast!".

Ok, then the message that is telling me that the extension won't be
published before the security team takes a look at me should be changed
to reflect this workflow.

I guess I can do that, what would be the procedure to get this ball
rolling? My typo3.org account is "baschny", if that matters.
