What are the legal values for appname and appversion?
If I try to
appname=CAFAna and appversion=
v0.9 the query hangs.
The only values I've found that work are "test" and "1".
My scripting elsewhere uses "LEM" and a version in the form "vX_YY_ZZ". Our grid scripting uses probably "nova" and "root" and a version in that same form.
Is there a whitelist somewhere to get added to, or should I just switch to using
It would be nice if the server replied with an error in this case rather than just hanging.

You can use samweb list-applications to get a list of existing values. If you give it the family as well it will create a new entry on the fly, otherwise you have to provide an existing name and version or supposed to return an error. However the error case is not coded correctly, which is causing an http 500 response to the client, which puts ifdh into a loop.

Family is just a arbitrary string to allow experiments to group their applications into some sort of structure. Personally I think it was a mistake and just the name would have been sufficient.
The hanging with an invalid name problem should be fixed in the next version of the server.
