Can the project administrators please disable the upload certificates on this project as was asked by David Anderson? This helps us who test the newer 6.13 clients as now all work we do for you project will get a validate error stamped on it, while the work is otherwise correct.

"Upload certificates" are a mechanism that keeps bad guys from DoS'ing your upload servers
(note: such an attack has never happened, as far as I know).

We're changing the format of upload certificates, and we're starting to test a version of the client for which old-format certificates won't work. Volunteers testers won't be able to upload completed jobs, and they may complain to you.

I suggest that all projects disable upload certificates. To do so, add the following to your config.xml file:

<dont_generate_upload_certificates/>
<ignore_upload_certificates/>

To resume using upload certificates, if you wish:

1) upgrade to the current server source code (from trunk)
2) wait for all jobs with old-format certificates to be dispatched
3) re-enable certificates by removing the above lines.

Let me know if any questions.

-- David


With thanks.

I'm testing and, in fact, I can tell you that I cannot upload any result:

A quick test reveals Rosetta@home still haven't fixed their broken upload-server:

unfortunately, I had to put Rosetta to NNT back in the days on my most powerful machine.

When will I be able to resume work?
Boinc 6.13.10 is out now and you're still on a really old server code (and you also didn't disable signature, too, if you don't want to upgrade - why, then?)
