Description

I requested ‘source-bundle’ from GetTor at 2011-06-10 14:37 UTC-07:00, and received it soon after; I then requested ‘tor-browser-bundle’ at 2011-06-10 14:43 UTC-07:00, and again at 14:56, and have not received a response to either message.

kaner says phobos asked kaner to turn off the dkim checking, so we could answer more domains.

How about as a compromise, we check dkim, and if it passes, not limit the number of packages that can be fetched? (if it fails, limit as we do now.)

Replying to arma:

We should update https://www.torproject.org/projects/gettor.html.en (and the instructions you get from gettor) to list which domains we support. If we currently support "pretty much everything", then we should put that on the website.

Updated the website to remove DKIM text.

Are you thinking of keeping a list of dkim-passed domains from which users can get multiple packages? Or simply on each email, if dkim passed, skip the blacklist code?

The latter. If the dkim check on the email passes, let them ask for as much stuff as they want.

(I don't know what a "dkim-passed domain" is.)

I also think we should raise the limit from "1 response per category per email" to, say, 3 responses. There are people right now who fetch the wrong package the first time, and then they're just screwed.
