Description

Dear WordPress Team,
Hello, WordPress team.
I'm a WordPress fan from China. Recently, for a long time, we found that for some reasons, all devices in China had 429 problems when visiting all subdomains of WordPress. I will not comment on the reasons. We are eager to solve this problem. WordPress has thousands of users in China. We all have this serious problem in our daily updates.
So we set up reverse proxy and forward proxy server to solve this problem. But we want to solve the problem fundamentally. We hope to build the image source of WordPress in China like Linux through our own efforts. You may have to bear a lot of attacks to solve this problem, so we hope to solve this problem thoroughly through our efforts. We sincerely hope that you can provide us with an API interface that can be used for docking, and hope to get the whitelist synchronization list. Very sincere request.
My English is not very good. If you can't understand it, please forgive me!
Attach the plug-in developed by our Chinese developers to temporarily solve this problem: https://github.com/sunxiyuan/wp-china-yes
In addition to this plug-in, there are many similar contents in China, and we all hope to solve this problem.
If you are willing to provide us with API interface, please contact us at the following way.

Very sincere request, thank you!
Small_SaltedFish, a WordPress fan from China. On behalf of Chinese fans.
Thanks a lot.

Several Chinese network sources are rate-limited on certain services due to a high level of abuse and non-legitimate traffic coming from those sources.

We won't be providing any form of whitelisting or an official way to replicate WordPress.org through a chinese proxy.
WordPress is of course open-source software, so you are free to host mirrors of the code, documentation, and provide built packages of it.

As the Meta team isn't responsible for the blocking, I'm going to pass this onto our Systems team - https://make.wordpress.org/systems/2020/03/21/re-evaluate-the-chinese-rate-limiting/
