Analytics access

Hi there, could @dd32 (in case he doesn’t have it), @tellyworth, and I be granted Google Analytics access to the group again? It’s currently blocking us from testing #1017-meta and moving forward with SEO work for the growth council. Thanks!



Feedly RSS blocking

As pointed out by we’re currently disallowing the Feedly RSS reader to use the Trac RSS feeds.

Is there any possibility of allowing that? Is it blocked for a specific reason? etc.

Change spam auto-delete threshold on Marx cPanel

We’ve gotten a few reports lately of emails not making it to our HelpScout instance. Looking at the Spam Filters settings in cPanel shows one potential culprit:

The current Auto-Delete Threshold Score (4) is lower than the Spam Threshold Score (5). This will cause the system to automatically delete messages that it did not previously consider to be spam. We strongly recommend that you increase your Auto-Delete Threshold Score.

When we try to change the threshold number to something else, like 5 or 6, the UI shows that the change was successful. However, after refreshing the page, the UI once again shows that the threshold is still 4. I suspect that this number must be hard-coded in a config file somewhere.

We would like to get this number bumped up to 5 or 6.



Upgrade Node/NPM on Build Server

Could Node please be upgraded to the latest LTS version (8.11.2), and NPM upgrade to 6.1.0?

#prio1 vulnerability scan

Just a heads up that our GDPR consultants are going to run a vulnerability scan on on the 29th, as part of their audit. It’ll be coming from these ranges:


There’s nothing to do on our end, I just wanted to make sure y’all were aware. I’m assuming it’ll be relatively standard, automated scans, nothing too targeted, and nothing destructive.

Transferring DNS to

I’d like to shut down the CloudFlare account I created for Can we have host DNS instead?

Notably, before the switch is made, these redirect rules would need to be replicated in some way:


Request to remove Subversion repo for old bbPress plugin

An old forum user made a request to remove their old bbPress 1.x generation plugin.

Their request:



This is my first time seeing anyone ask for this, so I’m not sure what’s achievable. If it’s possible and there’s a way to do it from my sandbox, I’m happy to help moderate these.


WordPress Foundation Trademarks Email + Zendesk

Currently WPF trademark emails are sent from, but that causes confusion since people expect them to come from the Foundation, and don’t know what Audrey is. @clickysteve would like to be able to send those emails from instead, and Matt approved that.

I’m guessing that means we’ll need a full mailbox for, and also a forward from that new mailbox to the existing address.

They use Zendesk, though, so I’m not sure exactly how that’s setup. It’s possible that it just spoofs the Sender header and relies on the SPF record to allow that, instead of authenticating via SMTP. It sounds like they just want it configured the same way that the other Zendesk accounts are.

Does that give you all the information you need to set it up?
