The string you are entering has expired. These confirmations expire some
time after they are sent. The time is set for the installation by
setting PENDING_REQUEST_LIFE in mm_cfg.py. The default time is 3 days.
If the confirmation email/invitation/??? was sent more than 3 days or
whatever PENDING_REQUEST_LIFE is ago, the cookie has expired, and yoiu
have to submit a new request.
