Description

The gravatar feature is great, but gravatar.com itself tends to be slow, or at least slower/with higher latency than any of my 3 redmine installs. Would it be possible to cache the gravatars locally in the redmine install? This could even go into public, as the gravatars a readily available anyway, so there's no need for much security.

Maybe this would also make it easier to implement local avatars, as you'd already have a local directory with avatars.

I can't see how this is resolved… Care to explain, or even better, could anyone from the redmine team reopen this? Thanks!

I am actually seeing this in our local redmine install when using the gravatar feature. A cache feature would definitely increase the use of the gravatar feature.

Maybe this would also make it easier to implement local avatars, as you'd already have a local directory with avatars.

This would be great.
