Add support of SharePoint Framework solution packages to the AppSource Store
The latest adjustments in the Microsoft Store police allows store's add-in to works with conjunction with another add-in that is available only from the provider. The solution package (.sppkg) build with SharePoint framework is not classified as 'add-in'. Thus, we cannot add add-in in the Store that depend on SPFx solution and there is no way of delivering customizations to the modern page.
I can offered two options for solving this issue: 1) Adjustment of point 4.18 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/store/validation-policies#bk_4) from the Store policy to allows SPFx modifications 2) ApPSource store to start allowing .sppkg solution packages to be added
Just to update the status. We are actively now working on having support for the SharePoint Framework in our store patterns. Can’t provide an exact ETA for this yet, but it’s being actively developed and worked on.

Good news Vesa.
This is great news Vesa! Will this be part of the newly announced "Microsoft Partners Center" update which will offer a new monetizing model for Teams apps? Or it's something totally different that will integrate with the current AppSource offering? And will there be some sort of mechanism which will block people from extracting the code straight out of the .sppkg?
Any updates on this?

This enhancement would be fantastic. I wonder why .sppkg files were excluded to begin with?
any idea on when this is coming ?
Any updates on this
Any update by when .sppkg packages allowed in Appsource. Can we upload .sppkg under Teams Catgeory?
Any idea when this might be coming ??
