Over the next few days the credit system will be migrated to one that:
o Is validation based rather than benchmark based.
o Is trickle based (so Work Units are still dummys).
o Is proportional to actual work contributed to the science of the project.
o Is fair so a PC crunching twice as fast will get twice the credit.
o Tracks and credits the progress of each BOINC host.
o Calculates RAC.
Please bear in mind during this time some credits might slip through the gaps.
However also massive amounts of credit might be handed out in a one-off event.
Once migration has taken place we will be adjusting the credit rate. It will likely start quite high and then we'll adjust it to be on the high end of what other projects are giving.
