[deleted] Again, this is also very comforting. I fully understand the priorities, but on the flip side, Blomstra would need to be compliant in order to offer it's services
The communities we host might need to be compliant. But yes we are well aware of the weight of having such an extension to the validity of our services.
[deleted] I'd like to think I fit this requirement - happy to contribute
You do, I think I meant having a +1 would be helpful too just for having another set of eyes on the subject.
[deleted] I need to reinforce that my view here isn't just "well, there's no GDPR extension, so I'm off..." - it's about the interests of Flarum as a wider project, and it's uptake in the EU, which we cannot ignore - both for project longevity and legal reasons.
I feel your personal pain. I apologize for not sharing it yet. I guess that's part of having so many responsibilities. Having a GDPR extension is in no way a responsibility of the core team as they should provide a kick-ass framework for extensions to work with. It's also not a responsibility of FoF as their goal is to guarantee existing open source extensions are maintained. It is a wishlist item for Blomstra, but we need to get things going in order to be able to invest time into this.
That is why I believe this is a responsibility of the community. The drawback is that development capacity right now is limited.
I don't want to say this isn't going to happen, I do think that someone needs to be swayed into continuing the previous efforts for something to happen within weeks. Maybe @ianm @clarkwinkelmann @askvortsov wants to give it a shot?
