Re: Signing Server Outage - July 11

This issue continues today.  Teams have been working around the clock but we do not have a resolution at this time.


We understand the impact this has on everyone developing for BlackBerry.  This is being treated as an ultra high priority issue.


I don't have anything further to share at this point... but will try and find out what more I can reveal.

Re: Signing Server Outage - July 11

This is a work stoppage.


I know there has been some emotion in here.. but in all seriousness, are there no backups of this server? Is there not a secondary signing server for emergencies like this?


I think the saddest part of this is that we have had to rely on the external signing server site for accurate information.

I'm glad you can make light of the situation because I can't. I hope there is an open forum that we can voice our opinions during DevCon Americas.

Re: Signing Server Outage - July 11

After all this BS, including the fact that we still don't have an email client on the PlayBook (nor will RIM allow developers to publish mail or IM clients), I've completely lost interest in going to DevCon.  It's more like, us DEVs are getting CONned.
