I think for the new *GDPR*[1] regulation coming into force into Europe
for privacy protection, we will have to propose a system where users can
see and change their data. The directive becomes active May, 25 2018.

This is not only true for OSGeo, but for every organisation working with
people in Europe. Maybe an idea to set up a shared initiative.
I have cross-posted this topic to the europe at lists.org because I think
there will be more 'specialists' about GDPR in that list...

Maybe this is the next project we should launch after the website is
succesfully rebranded.
