The team has begun to flag privacy-related tickets which should be built as feature plugins with the `feature-plugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party` manual tag A directory in Subversion. WordPress uses tags to store a single snapshot of a version (3.6, 3.6.1, etc.), the common convention of tags in version control systems. (Not to be confused with post tags.).
The team’s 2019 roadmap has been published to Make. @postphotos wrote a blog post on Make announcing its publication and explaining how the team has structured the plan.
Github GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ repo
@postphotos has gained admin (and super admin) access to the Github repo which we used for the V1 GDPR phase of our work. It has had no updates since 17 May of last year.
The team will now begin actively using the Github repo. The #core-privacy component maintainers have been given owner access to use it to build the feature plugins detailed in the V2 roadmap.
The existing pages on the repo from the V1 GDPR phase of the team’s existence will be retained on the repo and archived for reference.
Cross-project privacy cooperation
Please review and comment on the draft plugin privacy audit workflow drafted by @idea15 and Achilleas from the Joomla! privacy team.
The cross-privacy group will be participating in the Mozilla Open Leaders global sprint in May. It is essentially a virtual contributor day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. or days focused on something over and above the usual ticket scrubs and doc updates. The #core-privacy team participants should brainstorm something fun to do in cooperation with the Drupal, Joomla, and Umbraco privacy teams to advance global internet health.
