planning is finished
Is --mode set to "auto" ? if not, did you enter anything for the test server?
I have used no --mode or --server arguments, just "hwcert-backend plan". I was not asked for the server either. But it looks like when --auto is used, this problem does not happen.
I'm not clear on what the problem is then. You should be able to enter the server host name, or leave it blank, and continue.
I am terribly sorry, notabug. The hwcert is not stuck, but asking for the server. I was confused by wording of "Local Hardware Certification Test Server: " because it does not contain something like "Please enter" or a question mark. So my apologies, it is not a bug.
If it confused you, it's a bug.
Let's leave it open - perhaps we could make the prompt a bit more clear with "Please enter".
