The current server configuration seems to have a max upload file size of 50MB. I assume this is in the PHPPHP PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. http://php.net/manual/en/intro-whatis.php. configuration, although it may be limited by the webserver settings as well.
This is currently limited to 10MB on the main w.org network, and 50MB on the make network. These settings are through WordPress itself, in the Network Settings pages.
We would like that to be bumped to 100MB globally. The sites would still be limited to 10 and 50, respectively, with one exception. The https://wordpress.org/news/ site will need larger upload capabilities for the podcast files. Code has been added to allow up to 100MB uploads for the /news site only, but it is currently limited to 50MB by the server.
So, the request is to bump the max upload size on w.org to 100MB.
