#4224 new enhancement

Can we provide a Data Export Request form/page similar to the Data Erasure Request form/page

Currently, the export process for WP.org is to contact dpo@… (which w/ #3660 will change to a wp.org email hopefully). It would be nice to provide a Data Export Request form/page similar to the existing Data Erasure Request form/page.
Data Erasure Request - https://wordpress.org/about/privacy/data-erasure-request/

And once created would be nice to have it linked directly from the Privacy Policy.

Aside from the above approach or in tandem the export and erase requests could be made via a button in the wp.org user profile. This approach would mitigate spam requests as the user would already be logged in to make the request.

I understand core doesn't provide this functionality as of yet so if core is blocking this type of implementation then the good news is these features are part of the V2 privacy roadmap and once it's made progress will circle back.

*As well there's an existing plugin that covers alot of the front-end on this which can be looked to for code - https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/gdpr-data-request-form/

Thank you
