They rejected the submission with the donation link removed, citing
the existence of the donation link in the old build and providing a
screenshot of the old build, rather than the new build. I sent them a
response pointing out that they reviewed the wrong build, looking at
the old build rather than the new build, and I sent them a photo of
the new build as installed from Test Fight. My experience with Apple
here is that if you respond to their rejection with anything at all,
you automatically get put in a bin of at least a week wait time. I
hope that doesn't happen here. But, anyway, another day has gone by,
and we're still waiting on Apple to ship the fix to you all.

My response to them was:

I hope this gets cleared up soon. Maybe I'll watch Terry Gilliam's
Brazil on repeat while waiting.
