Sandboxing the PubSub framework

Are you having trouble sandboxing your app for the Mac App Store? I did and here is my experience on sandboxing News Anchor that uses Apple’s PubSub framework and didn’t play well with the sandbox. This cost me a DTS ticket and you will want to pay attention if your app also consumes RSS/ATOM feed data.

Lion’s sandboxing deadline may have been pushed back, but News Anchor came through and met the original date. Bringing News Anchor into the sandbox cost me one of the two precious DTS tickets in my quota, due to the difficulties in getting the PubSub framework to function in the environment. I’d figured I ought to write this out to contribute back to the Mac Developer community.
