There is a bug in Webupdates. The mntner object I am trying to update has two auth tags - with different passwords. I have only one of the auth tags. I have checked this by taking the original saves mntner and resubmitted it *without any changes* via email to auto-dbm@ripe.net and I received a SUCCESS message. Now I am trying via Webupdates and using the auth MD5 pswd I have and I am receiving an error of "You are not authorized to edit this maintainer". I suspect there is a a bug in Webupdates handling double auth tags.
