Description

While I am checking privacy page ( https://wordpress.org/about/privacy/ ) of wordpress.org, found that email id does not have mailto, An email address should be linked using the “mailto” protocol mailto? with prefilled “to” and “subject” fields.

The absence of a "mailto" link for an email address can indeed pose cognitive accessibility challenges for users.

For users with cognitive disabilities, navigating through tasks can be more challenging. A clickable "mailto" link reduces cognitive load by simplifying the process of initiating an email. Manually copying and pasting an email address can introduce errors.
Users relying on assistive technologies such as screen readers benefit from clickable
"mailto" links because these links are typically recognized and handled appropriately by assistive tools.
They provide a direct method for initiating email communication without requiring complex navigation or additional steps

Please let me know how can i add the patch for this not getting any repo for this
