There are a number of device manufacturers and app creators who have just gone the community publishing route because it does seem to take so long to get something done officially with SmartThings. Both Aeon Labs and Dome publish guides on their own support sites on how to use their approved community code for SmartThings, and blink cameras and Monolink sensors have done something similar.
