I am working on a pet project where I analyze the job_log files. Some are old retired projects, others active. The job log is named in a way that partially identifies the actual project and I wanted to look up the info and get the "real name" of the project.

BM uses "get_all_project_list" an RPC call that I do not want to replicate plus it does not get everything.

In the boinc folder there is a file "all_projects_list.xml" but is is missing, for example, Asteroids@home.
I only noticed that because it starts with "A" and was one of the first I looked for. It shows up in the manager when "add project" is selected so I am not sure why it is missing from that all_projects_list file.

If BM creates that "all_project_list.xml" why is it missing that Asteroids project?

BM is independent of BOINC so you need to address this question with them, bearing in mind than some projects do not share all their information with third parties of any one of a great number of reasons/excuses.

I am confused. I thought the Boinc Manager (BM) was part of the Boinc project since there is only one github "boinc" project.

[EDIT] You are probably thinking of "BAM!" a 3rd party. I mean the Boinc Manager that comes with Berkeley's boinc download.

Confused by some people using "BM" for "BOINC Account Manager", some for BOINC's manager component, and others for both.....

Asteroids@Home has had problems with its servers for over a year and was a handful of days ago running its webpages server from a Raspberry Pi. That's when David decided to temporarily remove it from the projects list. That hasn't propagated to the projects list in BOINC manager yet.

Edit: I will keep an eye on https://asteroidsathome.net/project.html and when it says there that the project is back, I'll notify David who will put it back on the projects lists.
