Big Bad Bug - Final uploadsTo everyone, and especially Daniel,
Please note I discovered a nasty bug while trying to upload my final entry. I was using Slimjet browser, a Chromium derivative - Windows 10, file format tar.gz made by MobaXterm (a Cygwin derivative).
The issue is this: the upload appeared to work fine. I have had trouble with uploads and archives before, so I downloaded it to test the archive. I found it was corrupt. I retried uploading twice more and they were corrupt. I switched to Internet Explorer and the archive's integrity survived.
Now I have seen this issue twice during the competition. This poor guy is bitten by it: https://pyweek.org/e/LateWarp/. I wouldn't be surprised if there are more to come.
No idea where to start an investigation to stamp this out. For now, spreading awareness seems the best immediate course. Judges, please be gracious if you encounter corrupt final entries during Pyweek 30. Hopefully people provided a repo we can download source and still play 'n judge; or they are reachable somehow, and it can be fixed with Daniel's help.
Maybe there is something more Daniel can do to assist the bug-bitten among us? Thanks for reading. :)
