ring -> jami transition on linux: account gone
I am on ubuntu linux. I had the ring, then jami, package from ring.cx. A couple of days ago I started to notice that apt was complaining about the lack of a release file on the ring/jami apt repo. I checked the http site and noticed that there was an expired certificate. Then, I got on the jami site and found out that there was a new download repo at dl.jami.net. I updated the apt source lists to use the new repo and updated.
I think that there must be some issue either in packaging or something else, that looses data in passing from the ring.cx to the newer dl.jami.net packages.
I take the occasion to ask for help even if this may not be the most appropriate place (even if I think that most users having my same issue may end up looking here). Now that my account is gone, I cannot find my backup. Is there any way to restore it from some data left around on my machine as an old ring directory?
Otherwise, I can create a new account, no big deal because I was still testing ring/jami. However, I see that jami prompts for "registering" the account. Where is it getting registered? I cannot find any mention of this on the jami site. However, if I try to register with the username/password that I had with ring, the username that I had with ring appears as taken. What should I do?
