Could you please switch it to the w.org certificate, so that the redirect to wordpress.org happens correctly?

We have a handful of @wordpress.org email addresses set up as forwards. For the teams that need an official email address and a supportpress/supportflow setup, we have been doing addresses on wordcamp.org (which has mailboxes) or setting up one-off gmail addresses to handle the mailbox, the owner of which might get lost over time. I talked to Barry at the team meetup days at WCSF about this and he said we should put wordpress.org on gmail for email. Matt said this was okay.
I’ve reclaimed the Foundation account for google apps for non-profits (a WC organizer had used the tax id to claim it without asking first, so we had to jump through some hoops). I’ve set up the account and gone through the steps with Ashish Shukla to have it recognize wordpress.org as the domain. The next step would be to modify the MX record to start routing email through the google apps account, but that gets complicated when it comes to ensuring no disruption to existing forwards, which is why Ashish and I were waiting for Barry to be available. When I spoke to Barry today, he said that @nacin is doing something around email too, so now he’s not super comfortable making changes at all lest we inadvertently step on each others’ toes.
@nacin: what is the thing you are doing with email, and does it preclude a shift to having actual mailboxes that are official? Let’s coordinate with whomever else is working on this to make sure everyone’s needs are met. I’m happy to share the google credentials with the appropriate people to get it going. We also get stuff like official hangouts the teams can use, calendar, etc. as part of the google apps account. If there’s a reason *not* to take Barry’s advice about using google apps/gmail for the team emails, I can remove wordpress.org from the google account (if so, please explain).
@barry, @stankea, etc: Otto has the only ftp creds for wp10.wordpress.net, and others need to be able to change images in the theme folder etc. Can you create another ftp account for me, and David and George and I will just share it?
Need this to send out wp10 uploading instructions to all the parties around the world (Australia etc 27th is today not tomorrow), so need access relatively urgently. Thanks, and sorry to interrupt your weekend.
We need a new VM on xen1.lax for archive.wordpress.org, which should have nginx-base but not PHP. A new wporg-archive role should have the bare minimum – just an nginx config that listens on archive.wordpress.org (SSL not needed) and serves up static files in /home/archive/public_html.
The SSH keys for coffee2code, otto42, and myself should be installed for the archive user. Ideally the user should have the ability do to the following:
- sudo /usr/bin/vim /usr/local/etc/conf.d/archive.wordpress.org.conf
- sudo /etc/init.d/nginx reload
(This has been discussed with and signed off by @barry)
Hi all. We need a wp install set up at wp10.wordpress.net for the 10th anniversary parties site. Matt would like it there rather than on .org, but @otto42 doesn’t have access there. Can someone set it up and make me an admin? Thanks.
Hey @barry and @stankea. Can you set up an email address (not a box, just an alias) of firstname.lastname@example.org and have it forward to me at email@example.com? At some point we’ll probably want to set up a supportpress instance or something, but for now I just need an active address to satisfy the meetup.com contract. Thanks.
Other things @barry expressed interest in (low priority) —
Problem with nginx rewrites, I think. Conflict between the new make.wp.org/support and the support forums.
Incorrectly redirects to:
The make site is currently set to default permalinks to work around this for now. Can the nginx rules be modified to handle this case?
Daniel Convissor is having trouble reaching plugins.svn.wordpress.org, here’s a traceroute:
Is this a broader issue?
Will give his email to @barry on Skype if any more info is needed.
