So:
The nonexistent URL wordpress.org/login redirects to the correct login page (login.wordpress.org) but in this particular case, the redirect after login must not be set to the initially added address, since you then get a circular forwarding once logged in.
https://login.wordpress.org/?redirect_to=https%3A%2F%2Fwordpress.org%2Flogin&locale=en_US

  • Priority changed from high to lowest

There is no page at wordpress.org/login. The login page is at https://login.wordpress.org.

Yes, there does seem to be a loop there, but none of the login links go to wordpress.org/login. So you can really only get that message by typing that URL in manually.

In 13142:

Login / SSO: Don't end up in an infinite loop if wordpress.org/login is used.

This URL isn't directly used, but is supported through wp_redirect_admin_locations().

Fixes #7329.
