WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ and all associated .org things were down for a bit today because of a networknetwork (versus site, blog) problem caused by our upstream provider. The outage lasted about an hour (12:05 – 13:05 UTC). Everything is back to normal now.

I just moved WP.org plugins SVNSVN Subversion, the popular version control system (VCS) by the Apache project, used by WordPress to manage changes to its codebase. and TracTrac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress. to a new server. What does this mean for you?

1) If your DNS resolver doesn’t honor TTLs, you may see a “down” message for http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org and you may get an error message when committing to http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org

2) CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. WP trac shouldn’t be so slow anymore. About 80% of the resources on the server were being used by plugins core + trac. I plan on moving core WP trac to a new server soon-ish, but in the mean time, it should be much snappier.

3) The SVN server version is now 1.5 instead of 1.4 (yes, I know – still behind. May upgrade later)

4) I may have completely broken something 🙂 I don’t think I have, but if you find plugins SVN or trac completely broken, please let me know here!
