Everything of the project is unreachable since months. The only "new" information I found, was that Constellation stopped at Jul.26.2015

The English version still tells it is running....

So, if the project is in fact dead, it should be removed from the official list.

Best guess is they ran out of funding, failed to inform the user-base and just letting it "die on the vine".

Been DOA for long time and BoincStats.com moved it from the active list to the retired list in Nov 2015.

I contacted one of the responsibles on Twitter at 15-Jun-2015 the first time.
He said, that they had hardware problems with the server and are still struggling with it.
At 27-Oct-2015 I contacted him again and asked about the continuation of the project.
His answer was: "We're working on it. Our previous admin left. Now we use the time to set up new things. But with a few people, it takes time :)."

I'll try to get some news again and tell you, what is going on ...

The guy wrote me, that they unfortunately still don't have an admin and the hiatus continues.
