The Joomla Volunteer Engagement Team (VET) is active again, and is now working hard to address the issues of the Recruitment, Reward and Retention of volunteers (the 3 R's). Recent activities include

  • Updating the VET roles: some old now irrelevant roles have been removed and one new role, 'Content Writer' has been added.
  • Redefinition of 3Rs: The VET mission statement should clearly define the what the 3 R's are and why they are important. The current VET mission statement is not sufficient, following recent team discussions this is being rewritten and will be published in the near future.

1. Privacy suite

  • Richard contacted Sander Potjer to determine if our using the Joomla Privacy Suite on the JRD Joomla install would interfere with the work he’s doing with Joomla Identify Portal.Sander replied: Basically the Identity Portal will be the central location for personal data and consents. Data will be sent to a site such as the JRD, but only after a valid consent is received for the JRD. The consent will automatically expire after a year, and needs to be renewed.
