The showcase currently has a rather low rate limit applied to it. Recently a new showcase design launched (Which included a rewrite of the backend), this should have brought with it a performance boost over the old areas of the showcase which caused performance issues.
The new showcase is reliant upon newer WordPress features, such as the Site Editor which is reliant upon the rest-api, currently these trigger 429 responses pretty quickly due to exceeding the rate limits.
Can we either significantly increase, or remove the rate limits on the showcase please? I would personally suggest removal of the rate limit unless the new design proves to cause issues as previously experienced.

Please create a new site similar to WP15.
It needs to be done this week so it can be used for the SOTW
Sam and Juan are new Super Deputies on wordcamp.org, can you please add them to the proxy?

The SSL cert being served up for https://plugins-svn.bbpress.org/ has expired, looks like it’s using an old copy of the
*.bbpress.org cert, that was updated in r14643 for webs but there’s a duplicate copy of for svns (See r11954 & r11955)
Currently there’s some User-agent based anti-spam blocks (Primarily on trac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. I think) that is blocking requests from Firefox version 100. I can’t see anything blocking Chrome 100, but that will also need to be checked at the same time.

I assume we have something looking for
Firefox/1 as a UA block Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. for ancient-versions of Firefox.

A few of us have access to Google Webmaster/Search tools for
https://wordpress.org/, but we do not have access for the entire
wordpress.org domain which would grant us access to
https?://*.wordpress.org/ (ie. what we have + subdomains).
Additionally, The marketing team would like access to Postmaster tools for the email deliverability data, which also requires domain verification.
I can see that there’s two existing Google domain authorisations (
dig +short TXT wordpress.org) but I’ve been unable to locate whose Google accounts have access to that when asking around.
Can I please have access granted to the domain-level Search Tools / Postmaster tools so that I can provide access to those who need it?
In the event that systems do not have domain-level access, here’s some instructions to get it:
1. Grant my a8c account verification access and I’ll deal giving those who need it; add
wordpress.org TXT google-site-verification=RLa_vaBBembqlBHv2iGePxw7Cw2nQhbYjKLX7HWpSks (I’ll add systems a8c account for future uses. If option 2 is taken, I’ll remove this auth attempt from my account)
2. Visit Postmaster tools, Add a domain, get the TXT record and add it. Grant my a8c google account access + plus that of @eidolonnight to Postmaster + Search Console (Full access please). Verifying the domain for postmaster tools will also grant search console verification.

The WordPress.org theme directory will now be accepting direct SVN access for theme updates. This means there’s two changes we need made on the systems side.
Everything else will remain the same for now, we’ll continue to accept ZIP uploads and apply the same theme checks on import. Initial theme submissions will continue to be ZIP-upload only, only updates will be available through SVN Apache Subversion (often abbreviated SVN, after its command name svn) is a software versioning and revision control system. Software developers use Subversion to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS). WordPress core and the wordpress.org released code are all centrally managed through SVN. https://subversion.apache.org/..
Dynamic SVN Auth file
The SVN auth file will need updated, similar to plugins:
- Create a copy of update-wp-plugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party-auth.sh & setup the cron task for it.
- SVN Auth file is available at https://wordpress.org/themes/wp-json/themes/v1/svn-auth
Authorization: BEARER $THEME_SVN_AUTH_BEARER_TOKEN as defined in secrets.php
The file is currently minimal and only outputting a few lines, but will be ~25k lines when it’s opened to theme authors.
This can be tested by editing
wp-content/plugins/theme-directory/rest-api/class-internal.php to either bypass auth temporarily or to output all authorship rules.
pre-commit ruleset for SVN commits
In order to prevent having to rebuild a bunch of things that are reliant upon themes.svn, we’d like to add some pre-commit rules to force commits to be in a specified format, rather than mostly free-form as plugins.svn is.
- Are always in a
- Is a newer version than currently live
- Does not alter existing versions (treat them as tags)
/1.2.3/ folder matches the
Version:1.2.3 header The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes. value
I’ve put together some rules that work in my testing, but I’m unsure if there’s a different way you’d like to implement it. These were tested against my own SVN server mimicking svn.wordpress.org 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. https://wordpress.org/ configuration.
The Openverse team wants an address
firstname.lastname@example.org to use with Helpscout.
I’ve created a mailbox within Helpscout for it. It seems that their connection setup has changed, and now in order to connect an email address on an external domain they send a verification code to that external email address.
I guess we can make this work by setting up a forward from
email@example.com. Presumably that will let me see the verification code and complete the setup (though I can’t see what the next steps require until I get past the confirmation code). I’m open to suggestions for better ways to do it.
There’s reports that WordPress.org 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. https://wordpress.org/ emails are taking hours to arrive. It appears to affect account creation confirmation emails, trac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. emails, and even the WordPress.org 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.
