Delete 2.9.5 tag at

A BuddyPress committer made a mistake in the 2.9.5 tag while back-porting a fix & performing a bunch of minor releases. I do not have the power to bypass the pre-commit hook:

Committing transaction...
svn: E165001: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E165001: Commit blocked by pre-commit hook (exit code 1) with output:
Cannot commit to a tag.

If possible, may I please have this tag deleted:

Bonus ask, may I please have the power to commit to tags on the BuddyPress & bbPressbbPress Free, open source software built on top of WordPress for easily creating forums on sites. repositories (or have the restriction removed completely?)

Email deliverability time problems

There’s reports that 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. emails are taking hours to arrive. It appears to affect account creation confirmation emails, tracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub. emails, and even the mailing list archives (wp-trac for example).

Looking at the time between Account registration & email confirmation for signups, about 24hrs ago (2021-08-01 15:00:00 UTC) the average time between signup and confirmation increased from 6hrs.

I sent myself some test emails from my sandbox 2 hours ago (to gmail) and still haven’t received either of them.
