#3622 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add a `privacy` focus and/or component

Reported by: iandunn's profile iandunn Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Trac Keywords:


It's been suggested several times[1, 2, etc] that a new focus and/or component be created on core.trac for privacy-related issues.

What does everyone think of that? What should it be called? Should it be a focus, or a component, or both?

I think "Privacy" is a good name. I can see the use case need for both.

In 4.9.6, the GDPR tickets have been labeled keyword: gdpr, component General (unless the issue clearly falls under another component). Having a component for Privacy would have helped organize a bit. But, I also see this being similar to the docs keyword. There are lots of components that may have tickets with a focus on privacy.

I also second "Privacy" as a good name. Keeps us from over emphasizing any particular privacy regulation.

Component created, per discussion in #meta:

  1. Who should be assigned as the component maintainers?
  2. Who can help write a component description for the make/core page? See REST API page for example.
