Can not use --track-renames when syncing to and from Crypt remotes? (forum.rclone.org)
I have an issue where if I try to sync with --track-renames between two crypt remotes then I get an error that "--track-renames ignored because the two remotes do not have a common hash". The sync works, but not with the feature I want, which I think is pretty important for use. Also I can run with --track-renames if I try between two non-crypt remotes Is this some sort of intended limitation or is there a way to work around it?

rename file (forum.syncthing.net)
Hi, I 'd like to understand what Syncthing does (hash, transfer…) when renaming a file on the master side and what result can be expected on the slave side. When I rename a file, I find it duplicated on the slave side. Is it “normal” ? Thanks, BD

Optimizing HTTP/2 prioritization with BBR and tcp_notsent_lowat (blog.cloudflare.com)
Getting the best end-user performance from HTTP/2 requires good support for resource prioritization. While most web servers support HTTP/2 prioritization, getting it to work well all the way to the browser requires a fair bit of coordination across the networking stack.
⚙ D21582 Ok after several years here is BBR. (reviews.freebsd.org)
This commit adds the final bits and BBR itself. It also updates the rack stack to be the latest one NF has. Along with bbr comes in a time-filter that is used by bbr to be able to properly age out both the b/w and the rtt-Prop. Changes are also made in IP so that we can, when using hardware pacing, disable the pacing for retransmissions (something rack needs to learn about when it decides to do real pacing).
