1) Do source (*.java) files need to be uploaded or can just the 'classes' folder be provided?
2) Looks like a new bot is played against 10 opponents. Can a newly uploaded bot be played against just a single opponent to make sure the interface is functioning properly? I have been using the provided engine to test, but there were a couple of changes to the command strings not sure if the engine or the starter bot code was incorrect.
3) Unrelated. Does anyone know if the 80k hands played in 4 humans vs AI contest are available for download?
A very interesting site!!

I was trying to upload .class files and my bot wasn't even compiled. And so .jar files with .class files or .java files packed in it also is not supported.
Don't know about hands of the Human vs AI game, but you may be interesting about logs from PokerAnnualCompetition. There are all hands were played. http://www.computerpokercompetition.org/index.php/competitions/results/105-2014-results?showall=&start=2 Here it is link to competition results and there are link to download logs.

2) When you upload your bot it plays an unranked match against a test bot. You can look at that match and decide if you want to set your bot to active or not.
FYI the downloadable engine uses headless camel case (maxWinPot) while the live engine uses underscores (max_win_pot). It should be easy to update your engine to match the live one though.
3) I don't think there is currently any way to simulate predefined hands. Again it probably wouldn't be too difficult to modify the test engine to do so.
