if the build server is gone, I wonder if we need to do anything ahead of time to be sure we can build our apps elsewhere, such as getting the signing certs?
I think Intel will still let us get our Keystores even when the build server is gone. I mean, they're vital, so we should still have access to them. Still it may be a good idea to download them to your computer and make at least 3 backups in different places of the Keystore.
I almost lost my Keystore today and I was really freaked out. Like it was just by remembering that I remembered the passwords and Alias for the keystore. I password protected the file i made with the Alias and passwords...whoopps. but i eventually remembered them. I had to do them again cause i just switched to Cocoon.
I had a file where I wrote down the Alias and Passwords, which i needed cause i was going to Cocoon. I password protected THAT document though....i actually downloaded a password cracker* for Open office....but eventually remebered the Alias and Password.
Basically, Write down somewhere in multiple places the Alias and Passwords for Keystore, and have at least 3 backup copies of the actual .keystore file.
*It's legal because it was my file on my computer.
