Package: boinc-manager
Version: 5.4.11-1~bpo.1
Severity: normal

The registration wizard does not accept a plus sign on email addresses, as
in "foo+bar at example.com" (used for example on gmail). I had no problems
registering it on my account via web interface.

Other uncommon characters are also refused by the manager (like "%" and
"$"), but I couldn't check if the projects accept them.
