Delete 2.9.5 tag at

A BuddyPress committer made a mistake in the 2.9.5 tag while back-porting a fix & performing a bunch of minor releases. I do not have the power to bypass the pre-commit hook:

Committing transaction...
svn: E165001: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E165001: Commit blocked by pre-commit hook (exit code 1) with output:
Cannot commit to a tag.

If possible, may I please have this tag deleted:

Bonus ask, may I please have the power to commit to tags on the BuddyPress & bbPressbbPress Free, open source software built on top of WordPress for easily creating forums on sites. repositories (or have the restriction removed completely?) It happens rarely, but it’s an easy clean-up for me when it does.

IIRC, the original reason we’d added that hook many years ago was because we were using those tags for deployment to dotorg, but we switched to deployingDeploy Launching code from a local development environment to the production web server, so that it's available to visitors. from plugins.svn when we introduced build processes.

Vary nginx cache by wporg_locale cookie value

This cookie gets set by the locale-detection pluginPlugin 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.

Bumping this down to #prio2 as it was worked around, but needs a call on whether this should just be closed or not.

Update `A` record

Hi, can you please update the A record for to point to

The current record points to a droplet under @aduth‘s personal account, and we’d like to change it to a Foundation account that several of us have access to. DigitalOcean doesn’t allow transferring droplets, so we had to setup a new one, hence the IP change.

Relax chinese rate limiting for Trac

In the rate limit for chinese traffic was relaxed, but it looks like Trac still has a rate limit in place.

Can we relax the rate limit for TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub. as well?

If DOS traffic is still an issue, is it at all possible for logged in traffic to bypass the limits?



Enable cURL on production server?

The script that updates our ip2location database tables relies on cURL to download the newest data files. We’ve been running this script manually on sandboxes for a couple of years and it has always completed without errors. Recently we set up a cron job to run this script automatically, which means it now happens on the production server instead of a sandbox. However, during its inaugural run today, it failed with a curl: command not found error message.

Would it be possible to enable cURL on production so this script can run there?


Enable Byte-Range Requests

Request from Chloé Bringmann:

I ran into an error when trying to upload the RSS feedRSS Feed RSS is an acronym for Real Simple Syndication which is a type of web feed which allows users to access updates to online content in a standardized, computer-readable format. This is the feed. on Apple for the new WP Briefing podcast. Would you be able to assist with this?I submitted the WP Briefing podcast to Apple and got the following error:

Can’t submit your feed. Your episodes are hosted on a server which does not support byte-range requests. Enable byte-range requests.

Is this something we can do on, or would this be something where we want to utilize a CDN to serve the files instead?


Increase upload size maximum to 100MB on

The current server configuration seems to have a max upload file size of 50MB. I assume this is in the PHPPHP PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. configuration, although it may be limited by the webserver settings as well.

This is currently limited to 10MB on the main network, and 50MB on the make network. These settings are through WordPress itself, in the Network Settings pages.

We would like that to be bumped to 100MB globally. The sites would still be limited to 10 and 50, respectively, with one exception. The site will need larger upload capabilities for the podcast files. Code has been added to allow up to 100MB uploads for the /news site only, but it is currently limited to 50MB by the server.

So, the request is to bump the max upload size on to 100MB.
