Thank you for your interest in REUSE and REUSE Booster specifically!

I can confirm that you've successfully registered your project, actually
two times. It seems your email client or email provider clicked the
link for you already. Some systems to that, apparently for phishing
prevention reasons.

After clicking the link once, the confirmation code is deleted. That is
why you receive this "error". We are evaluating some ways to prevent
that in our system here [^1].
