Just a suggestion from me, please - not important.

I happened to be in the middle of doing some maintenance myself when I got

21/08/2017 10:40:43 | Einstein@Home | Project is temporarily shut down for maintenance
21/08/2017 10:40:43 | Einstein@Home | Project requested delay of 3600 seconds

I know your maintenance events tend to be pretty short-lived, so I tried again

21/08/2017 10:42:11 | Einstein@Home | Scheduler request completed: got 33 new tasks

Might it be possible to set the default backoff to something smaller, like 5 or 10 minutes, rather than BOINC's default 1 hour? That would smooth the workflow somewhat.
