John Bennett, our Security Director, and Tony Sebro, our Deputy General Counsel, are
leading our work on GDPR compliance. It is a significant priority for both Tech and the
Legal departments at the WMF.

Is there any roadmap for MediaWiki that addresses the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection
Regulation) being enforced as of 28 May 2018?
Mainly addressing user registration on websites and holding what the EU deems personally
identifiable information of EU residents such as usernames, real names, email addresses,
etc. A method to prove consent such as a checkbox for Terms of Service and the date
consent was given.
From the read of GDPR, it effects any company or organization (even those outside the EU)
who store data on someone living in the EU.
