Does anyone know the technical requirements needed to get into the Mac App Store?
Are there any developers here who'd like to get involved in this process?
Here is the guidelines for submission to App Store

And for iOS (iPhone and the like, FYI)

Technically, I would say LibO meets all (most?) the requirements needed.

I don't think it meets these:

- It duplicates apps already in the App Store, particularly if there
are many of them (iWork)
- It creates a store inside itself for selling or distributing other
software (extensions)
- It is not packaged and submitted using Apple’s packaging
technologies included in Xcode – No third party installers are allowed
(I thought this was a major goal of LibO)

And I don't know whether it meets this one:
- It has metadata that mentions the name of any other computer platform

I do find it bizarre that people are so up in arms about OOXML but
seem to have no complaints with Apple's blatant attempts to have total
control over the software you are allowed to install on your own
