Rate limiting preventing me from contributing

I started messing with the public beta and noticed some oddities with file permissions. I found https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt/issues/1473 and decided to try to submit a PR to address it, but I am now rate limited and can no longer test.

I’m not going to use more domains or hosts to work on this, so I really can’t test or contribute anything.

Is there a way around this or a way to perform mock certificate creations without affecting the rate limit?

The staging server acme-staging.api.letsencrypt.org doesn’t impose any rate limits.


Thanks! I'll give that a shot.
