Hi, we got the following email from Help Scout. I’m not sure if it applies to both of our instances, or only one of them. The records need to be updated by October 16th.
As of October 16th, 2023 we will no longer be relying on SPF authentication tied to your domain when using Help Scout servers to send email as your custom email address. We are moving to a method with a focus on DKIM instead, to both modernize our infrastructure and align with industry best practices.
You’re receiving this message because your domain(s) currently has a DMARC record set to p=reject, but does not have the CNAME records to allow DKIM authentication for emails sent from Help Scout. If you do not take action before we make these changes, emails you send from Help Scout will be rejected by many email servers as they will no longer be DMARC aligned.
To continue using Help Scout servers to send emails as your domain, you’ll need to create a couple of CNAME records at the DNS DNS is an acronym for Domain Name System - how you assign a human readable address to a website’s exact numeric coded location (ie. wordpress.org uses the actual IP address 126.96.36.199). provider for your domain so that recipient servers can authenticate the DKIM signature on emails you send from Help Scout.
You’ll need two CNAME records:
strong1._domainkey.[yourdomain] should point to strong1._domainkey.helpscout.net
strong2._domainkey.[yourdomain] should point to strong2._domainkey.helpscout.net
Our article Use DKIM to Help With Email Deliverability has a bit more information if you need it.
Alternatively, you may choose to set up your Help Scout mailbox to connect to your email provider to send email, instead of sending from our servers. You do not need to make changes to your DNS records if you choose to change the sending method.
Our article Outgoing Email Settings explains a bit more about the different options and has links to help with setting up the connection to your provider.
Hi, the Community team would like to start using the events.wordpress.org domain for a new series of events. They’ll need many of the same tools as WordCamps, so the Meta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. team would like to use the wordcamp.org server to host the domain.
Can you please setup DNS DNS is an acronym for Domain Name System - how you assign a human readable address to a website’s exact numeric coded location (ie. wordpress.org uses the actual IP address 188.8.131.52)., nginx NGINX is open source software for web serving, reverse proxying, caching, load balancing, media streaming, and more. It started out as a web server designed for maximum performance and stability. In addition to its HTTP server capabilities, NGINX can also function as a proxy server for email (IMAP, POP3, and SMTP) and a reverse proxy and load balancer for HTTP, TCP, and UDP servers. https://www.nginx.com/., SSL Secure Socket Layer - Encryption from the server to the browser and back. Prevents prying eyes from seeing what you are sending between your browser and the server., etc to support that? I assume it’d be similar to what was needed to add buddycamp.org.
For SSL, we’re not planning to use any 4th-level domains, only
events.wordpress.org/.... So I assume the 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/ wildcard is all that’s needed?
They’d like to launch the first one around the end of the month. @vnsavage, if you have time to do this in the next ~4 business days that would help us make that deadline, but I understand if not.
https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-develop and the Security mirror aren’t being pushed when a SVN commit is made – this started happening when GitHub rotated it’s host key.
https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-develop is still receiving commits, as GitHub is pulling them from git://develop.git.wordpress.org/ every 15-20 minutes, but we need to push them in order for GitHub actions to work.
https://github.com/WordPress/WordPress has also ceased syncing, and it appears not to be managed by Systems, and likely to be managed by @markjaquith who has the same GitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

We should migrate this from Mark account to something Systems managed. I’m not sure how best to do that however, as the Git Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance. Most modern plugin and theme development is being done with this version control system. https://git-scm.com/. commit hashes do not match git://core.git.wordpress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users.

auth_key do not need to be updated during this process, as the tokenised cookies simply add an extra token value.

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

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.

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.
