Could I please have the en_US.utf8 locale setup on my sandbox please?

I need it to finish the work on the Plugin Directory ZIP/SVN handling with non-ASCII filenames.

For reference, locale -a only lists C, C.UTF-8, POSIX currently, while I know production and some other sandboxes have en_US.utf8.

Posting on behalf of @julia.ullrich. We need proxy access for Lauren Zarzycki (.org username @laurenzarzycki) and trusted deputy access on the network. She needs to access the payment dashboard in the network admin, as well as individual payments/reimbursements on each WordCamp event site for bookkeeping purposes.

Her public key is:


#proxy, #wordcamp-org disk space

We’re getting low on disk space for again; it was down to ~2 GB today. I pruned some things and got it back up to ~6 GB, but wanted to get the ball rolling on a long-term solution.

The Community Team has discussed this in the past and decided that we’d strongly prefer to not delete old messages, because we sometimes need to go back and reference them. For Central’s accounts, there are also some legal restrictions around contracts, etc that need to be kept.

The last time this happened, sysmonk increased the space from 20 GB to 50 GB, but we’ve used that up in the past two years. We’re expecting to have about 125 WordCamps this year, and that’s growing 10% – 15% each year, so I don’t think the current solution is going to work for much longer, unless we can get a much larger chunk of the 300 GB available on the server.

What kind of options would you recommend? It might be good to answer the SSL/webmail question first, since we might end up migrating to Google Apps or something if modern webmail isn’t an option.

#disk-space, #mail, #wordcamp-org

It looks like doesn’t use ALPN for negotiating the connection encryption. Chrome is dropping support for NPN next month, so it’d be nice if we could upgrade before then.

Allowing SMTP

The Community Team is discussing e-mail options for WordCamp organizing teams, and one of the potential solutions is to allow SMTP traffic from outside the network. If that was done, then the teams could send out mail from accounts, rather than having to setup a Gmail account that messages get forwarded to, and sending mail from that.

I don’t know why SMTP is currently blocked, though, so I wanted to find out if allowing that traffic is an option or not.

Hello! Can I please have the mysqldump cli tool installed on my sandbox?

I’d like to dump some data from so I can do some testing regarding performance.

“Some data” are following tables:

  • translate_translations
  • translate_originals
  • translate_projects
  • translate_translation_sets

And performance is regards this issue: I want to find out which current or new indexes will help to lower the execution time of queries.
