We are currently investigating the issue.

Traffic against the plugin portal has increased heavily this week, with a serious uptake in traffic from user agents identifying as Renovate and some specific source IPs having increased traffic from nearly nothing to multiple millions requests an hour.

We have enforced rate limiting for the worst offender.
