  • plus: usual supervision, minor fixes, minor changes to graphana, upgraded influxdb, etc…

Schema change

Discussion about the status of the various tickets. A few tickets still remain that are currently assigned to @LeftmostCat and @chirlu, but @Bitmap reckons that it isn’t unsurmountable, as long as patches/pull requests get merged before/on Friday the 13th.

WS rate limiting

@Zas talked about his tests with the new rate limiting and discussed some of his findings/results related to this.
