In https://make.wordpress.org/systems/2020/03/21/re-evaluate-the-chinese-rate-limiting/ the rate limit for chinese traffic was relaxed, but it looks like Trac still has a rate limit in place.
Can we relax the rate limit for Trac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. as well?
If DOS traffic is still an issue, is it at all possible for logged in traffic to bypass the limits?
The script that updates our ip2location database tables relies on cURL to download the newest data files. We’ve been running this script manually on sandboxes for a couple of years and it has always completed without errors. Recently we set up a cron job to run this script automatically, which means it now happens on the production server instead of a sandbox. However, during its inaugural run today, it failed with a
curl: command not found error message.
Would it be possible to enable cURL on production so this script can run there?
Request from Chloé Bringmann:
I ran into an error when trying to upload the RSS feed RSS is an acronym for Real Simple Syndication which is a type of web feed which allows users to access updates to online content in a standardized, computer-readable format. This is the feed. on Apple for the new WP Briefing podcast. Would you be able to assist with this?I submitted the WP Briefing podcast to Apple and got the following error:
Can’t submit your feed. Your episodes are hosted on a server which does not support byte-range requests. Enable byte-range requests.
Is this something we can do on w.org, or would this be something where we want to utilize a CDN to serve the files instead?
