Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 Recent changes related to this effort are causing odd behavior on
 BuddyPress.org and bbPress.org.

 Most severely, when trying to visit `buddypress.org/support` as a logged-
 out user, you will be redirected back to `wordpress.org`, essentially
 making the BuddyPress.org forums impossible to reach. bbPress.org's forums
 do not appear to be affected by this problem (perhaps because their url is
 `/forums`, but I'm not certain?)

 Once manually logged into WordPress.org of your own determination, the
 BuddyPress forums are accessible again.

 But then... clicking "Log Out" successfully clears the BuddyPress.org
 cookies and redirects back to the current page, but the WordPress.org
 cookies do not get cleared. Clicking "Log In" will immediately log you in
 without ever seeing a login screen, presumably because the WordPress.org
 cookie exists and the redirect is functioning as intended.

 Ultimately, this results in a limbo sign-in state that users cannot fully
 free themselves from.
