Either the statement about syncing every 15minutes is wrong and the mirror has been abandoned, or the sync process is stuck.

Since, I rely on the github mirror for some the work I do with wordpress, I would really like this to be resolved, as I believe it is easy to do so.

Hi @c00kiemon5ter, welcome to WordPress Trac!

Until the GitHub mirror sync is fixed, can you switch your remote to git:// That should be more reliable.

I need to chime in with a "me too" here.

I went to update to 4.9.8 today and observed the broken mirror. My workflow is treat the GitHub mirror as an upstream remote and do a git merge from the tags into my own git repositories for my wordpress sites + plugins, I've been doing that for years, and it's always been spot-on reliable until today.

Switching to git:// is going to be a giant mess of conflicts because the git history is treated as unrelated - at least from the first local tests (also being able to use the GitHub web UI to inspect changes is a huge benefit as well)

I'm super thankful for this mirror and appreciate the volunteer work that goes into maintaining it. It's been a first-class part of the WordPress dev for years, if that's going to change, I do understand - but it's definitely going to cause some headaches.

I know this is assigned, but I just wanted to add the "me too" about how useful this mirror has been and would continue to be.
