Apple Responds to Developers Regarding Expired Mac App Store Security Certificates

Husain Sumra, writing for MacRumors:

Last week some users and developers experienced an issue that displayed a “damaged” error when attempting to open select apps from the Mac App Store, including popular apps like 1Password, Tweetbot, and Byword. Today, Apple has sent an email to developers explaining what happened and how to fix their apps.

Put aside the argument about whether a fiasco like this should have ever happened in the first place. Why did it take six days for Apple to publicly respond and explain what happened?
