Heaven forbid! While we have tried hard to test SecPAL as we developed it, we are a small "incubation" team with limited resources so it is possible that you will find bugs! Please post bugs, along with detailed reproduction steps in the Issuer Tracker section. As these releases are simply for research purposes we are tentatively planning an update in / around July depending if bugs are actually found or not. We will consider the community bug scores to help us prioritize which bugs to focus on.
